* VideoGame/SuperMarioBros: There's one where you get to ride on Yoshi and watch a Mario figure kick a Koopa Troopa shell repetitively while the ride was in motion. It's by Banpresto (now Creator/BandaiNamcoEntertainment), who at that time (the mid-90s) has an alliance with Nintendo for amusement arcade games. There's another ride in the shape of a carriage with a monitor and interactive buttons. Unfortunately, [[NoExportForYou they're Japan-only]] (although they've been parallel imported into several Asian countries).

* WesternAnimation/NoddysToylandAdventures - Both Noddy rides are just as popular as the Postman Pat rides, and it shows. Almost a dozen designs exist (including one version that plays back a UsefulNotes/LaserDisc video onto a monitor positioned in front of the ride; courtesy of Bell Fruit), and the ride manufacturer license has changed hands several times, from Bafco, to Photo-Me, to Northern Leisure/Kiddy Rides UK, to Amutec. From Make Way for Noddy, we have Noddy and Tessie Bear in the car, which was released by Mitchells and later, Jolly Roger. Some of the JR versions feature a video screen. From Noddy in Toyland, there is a carousel by Jolly Roger featuring Noddy and Mr. Plod, which plays the Make Way for Noddy theme tune and a button that makes horn sounds when the ride is in motion. Perhaps unsurprisingly, all the rides feature Noddy's little yellow car. The rides have also been exported worldwide- one has been seen in a UsefulNotes/{{Walmart}} in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA, of all places.

* Series/{{Tweenies}} - Actually spawned two rides: the rocket from the opening theme, and EnsembleDarkhorse Doodles, both by Amutec. Strangely, the Tweenies rocket rides were often refurbished with Stamar sound boards, it has come to a point where refurbished rides with the Stamar sound boards are far more common than those with the original boards.

* Series/RosieAndJim - We have the Ragdoll by OMC Electronics (John Cunliffe), and later an updated version by Amutec (Neil Brewer) that features two options: one with a peekaboo window featuring Rosie & Jim and one with a LCD display showing four clips (the latter being rare; good news: AJ The Fangirl found one in Skegness, but some buttons don't work and the audio is mute).

* ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'': All made by BandaiNamcoEntertainment under the Banpresto brand, there's a Doraemon time machine ride with an interactive screen and buttons (actually, there are two versions of the time machine ride- the one with the interactive screen mentioned, and a older, smaller version of the ride that lacks the screen), a Giant Doraemon that fits two kids and move in a spinning motion (also having an interactive screen and buttons), a Doraemon pirate ship (again, with an interactive screen and buttons), one with Doraemon sitting on a cloud with the rider, [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers and a fire engine with Doraemon on it]]. Again, sadly, officially they're NoExportForYou and can only be found in Japan, although like other Japanese arcade machines they've been unofficially exported to other Asian countries via grey-market imports. Aside from that, however, there's also dozens of Chinese-made unlicensed knockoffs which are sadly, much more prevalent.
* ''Anime/DragonBall'': One where the child gets to ride on Nimbus with Goku. By BandaiNamcoEntertainment.

** From Japan, we have (in loose chronological order) Hello Kitty teaching in front of a blackboard, Hello Kitty sitting in a boat, Hello Kitty holding on to some balloons (all three are rocking rides, by the way), three Hello Kitty cars (one with a monitor to play out a simple game with the rider), a Hello Kitty Cinderella-like coach (again with monitor to play out a game), a battery-operated car, a "magical" piano with Hello Kitty standing on the top, and Hello Kitty hanging on to a WingedUnicorn which the rider will ride on. And that's just the ''known'' models. There are apparently several manufacturers, but the most prevalent one is apparently BandaiNamcoEntertainmenti.
