* ''WesternAnimation/InchHighPrivateEye'' features this in the opening sequence, and in some episodes of the show. Laurie and Gator would rise from a secret passage to the street in their electric Hushmobile, then they would drive to a certain place where Inch goes down an outdoor gutter pipe and flies out the other end where Gator would catch him with a catcher's mitt[[note]]Due to the way it's drawn, it looks more like a normal baseball glove, but is implied to be a catcher's mitt.[[/note], then they would drive off to their next case.

** Bruce has a hidden door in his penthouse that presumably leads to a sort of mini-Batcave where he keeps a spare costume. A pair of guests see him opening it and assume it's a secret SafeRoom (and that he is a massive prick for locking the door right behind himself, leaving them in danger)

* Played for laughs in ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub''. A powerful motor rumbles and Renge rises up out of the ground on a slowly rotating platform, affecting a NoblewomansLaugh. It was weird enough when it happened in Music Room 3, but she apparently has similar rigs set up all over Japan.

* Demolished in the [[WaltDisney Disney]] movie ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'': the antagonists have a clothes-changing rollercoaster (in pre-Spanish South America; go with it) behind one of two switches. Not even its owner seems to remember which switch sends the puller into the [[SharkPool moat]]. ([[NoOSHACompliance "Why do we even have that lever?"]]) When the good guys ride it later on, they finish dressed in the definitely non-fitting outfits of the bad guys.

* The firefighters of Battalion 24 on ''Series/ThirdWatch'' regularly used a pole to go from their ready room to their trucks and equipment. Unusually, the show actually depicted some of the minutiae of using the pole, with it being kept behind a small gate with the hole being covered by a hatch that opens automatically when the gate it opened. Also, the dangers of the pole are shown when Paramedic Carlos Nieto decides to give it a try without ever having learned how to use it and plummets down to the ground (paramedics normally take the stairs).
