* When designing ''Franchise/TheHauntedMansion'', Creator/WaltDisney originally wanted to place it on [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Main Street USA]]. Which is based on his hometown.
** This one isn't too bad- Walt just thought that most small American towns would have a ramshackle mansion that the local kids would refer to as haunted. It's a joking act of nostalgia.
*** Another Haunted Mansion one, there's a story one attendant told someone about how the guests riding in doom buggies "die" by "falling" out of the attic window after seeing the dead bride, and that is why they can see all the ghosts in the graveyard and past that. This would [[FridgeBrilliance perfectly explain why the groundskeeper looks like he got the crap scared outta him when he looks at]] ''[[AndThenJohnWasAZombie you]]''.
** Maybe this is more obvious than it was for me, but in the Stretching Room, the Ghost Host says that there are no windows and no doors, which means there's no way out... "Of course, there's always my way." Just then, the room goes dark and a body is seen hanging above the ceiling. I didn't realize this until later, but that's HIS BODY. HE HUNG HIMSELF. [[NightmareFuel THAT WAS HIS WAY OUT.]]
*** This troper thought "his way" was the secret exit that opens a minute later until their last trip to Disneyland.
**** There was a record released that told the tale of two teenagers who took a tour of the mansion. As they see the body in the gallery, a raven cries out "The coward's way out. He chose the coward's way out." Suicide is also sometimes referred to as "The coward's way", so the record makes it clear.
***** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yDtriIo11s Here]] is the audio of the record, and the part in question starts around the 6:29 mark. Sweet dreams...
* ''Pleasure Island'', a nightlife section of Walt Disney World, is named for the island in ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' where naughty boys are turned into donkeys and then supposedly worked to death.
* When things start to become a little chaotic on Universal Studios' ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' ride, you pass a boat just like the one you're riding in. It's empty, except for a carnivorous Dilophosaurus with a shred of clothing in its mouth. So, the implication here seems to be that the men, women, and children in that tour boat were VICIOUSLY DEVOURED. See also NightmareFuel.
** Another terrifying moment in that ride if thought about too hard occurs at the very end of the ride. A T.rex appears and roars just before you plunge down a vertical 80-foot drop. The implication may well be that the T.rex just pushed your boat off the edge of a tall cliff to your gruesome death in the water tens of meters below. You just DIED on this ride!!
** During the ride you first see one T.rex emerge from the ceiling before you barely make your escape and encounter ''another'' T.rex just before the ride ends. Two Tyrannosaurs is scary enough as it is, but, then you realize that T.rex may've actually hunted in pairs. In other words, you didn't just have an unfortunate run-in with two random Tyrannosaurs, but rather a hunting pair that wanted to ''eat'' you.
*** Even worse, the T.rex's supposed hunting technique was to chase prey into the waiting jaws of another T.rex. What happens on the ride? You run into one T.rex before escaping and encountering the second T.rex.
