* Tropical Land in ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' - it's very Disney-esque, with a central hub and themed sub-areas.

* '''Roller coaster'''. Sometimes steel, but usually wooden. Always completely outdoors with the track supports obvious (i.e. from a distance, it is immediately recognizable as a roller coaster). This doesn't quite fit Universal or Disney-- Universal coasters nearly all feature inversions (which are impossible on wooden coasters), while Disney parks almost (but not quite) always hide the track in some way, whether by putting it inside a building (Space Mountain) or by theming (Big Thunder Mountain Railroad). Six Flags does use this sort of coaster at its parks, often playing up the nostalgia angle, but typically has steel coasters alongside them.

** Fun-Fun Mountain had an attraction called Souvenir Land, so it's still sort of the trope namer.

* Krustyland from ''Ride/TheSimpsonsRide'' at Ride/UniversalStudios is a poorly-put together theme park designed to shake as much money out of its customers' pockets as possible.

* The bizarre theme park in ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'', in which Gru is forced to ride a crazy roller coaster along with the girls in his care, and in which he destroys the game stand and "wins" Agnes her stuffed toy unicorn.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' - Strong Bad imagines one of these, called "Strong Bad's Mount [=RidesPlace=]! USA" in one of his [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail104.html emails]]. Since he can't afford to build it, he settles for "The Strong Badian Riverquest Safariventure", a Jungle Cruise clone ''so'' pathetic, it just takes place in a cardboard box on a small puddle of water with Strong Bad giving lifeless commentary.

* BanjoTooie has Witchyworld, a decrepit, unsafe theme park known for terrible sanitation, bribing authorities, and employing pickpockets. Oddly enough, Boggy's family still thinks it's a pretty awesome place.

** Uncle P's Antiques once sold an item that gave players a map to the Magic Commune, an amusement park owned and operated by hippies. It features such attractions as Freegans of the Mysterious Island, Mary Jane's Wild Ride, and the Electric Lemonade Acid Parade.
** The Mr. Store item for April 2015 offered access to [[BlandNameProduct Dinseylandfill]], a [[ElementalRockPaperScissors stench-aligned]] zone that's a combination amusement park and landfill. Tacky ''and'' disgusting!



* A [[RockyAndBullwinkle Fractured Fairy Tale]] had a take on "Sleeping Beauty" with the prince--a loose caricature of Walt Disney--choosing to not wake Sleeping Beauty with a kiss but to market her and the castle as a tourist attraction, souvenirs and all.

* ''Film/EscapeFromTomorrow'' is a horror film about a man who'd just been fired going on a family vacation to a Disney theme park, and slowly losing his mind in the process as the park's shiny happy facade slips away. Notable for having actually been filmed at Disneyland and Disney World -- ''without'' Disney's permission. (They backed down from trying to get the film pulled from release after realizing that [[StreisandEffect this would just make everybody want to see it]].)
