* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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).

'''Archer''': For basically putting a pole where the garbage shoot already is already is. But the co-op board was all like, "where are we going to throw the garbage?"\\

* ''Film/TheDarkKnight'''s (presumably temporary) Batcave was accessed by... unlocking a storage container on a condemned piece of Wayne Enterprises property. To put it mildly, this is the least dramatic thing in the movie.

* ''[[Film/WaynesWorld Wayne's World 2]]'' had a fire pole revealed by pressing a button inside a bronze bust. Funnily enough everyone ''but'' Wayne uses the pole, while Wayne takes the "scenic route," otherwise known as the elevator, to give him time to give the necessary beginning-of-the-movie exposition.

* Many superhero tropes are loving reproduced in ''Film/SkyHigh'', including twin bat poles for the husband-and-wife superheroes Commander and Jetstream behind a secret panel in the den. When Commander takes his son into the secret lair for the first time, he has him use his mother's pole.
