* ''{{Scribblenauts}}'' has a level where you must get some bad guys into heaven. Now, you could [[AwesomeYetPractical just tie them to a pegasus and drag them up with chains]], but if you summon a stairway, hey presto, they just float up and you win the level.

* ''TheKingAndI'': At the end of the interpolated ballet "Small House of Uncle Thomas," Little Eva dies and goes to the arms of Buddha. She is given wings and she climbs an onstage staircase through the clouds up to where Buddha is sitting, as the chorus sings "Praise to Buddha!"
* In the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical ''{{Cats}}'', the way to the cats version of heaven, the Heavyside Layer, is apparently a large golden staircase that descends from the rafters during the final number.

* There's a ''[[TheFarSide Far Side]]'' cartoon that plays with this, and the {{Hellevator}}, by depicting an escalator going up to Heaven and one heading down to Hell. The demon riding the down escalator pies the angel riding up in the face.
