[[caption-width-right:350:You wouldn't ''believe'' the natural processes responsible for that thing's shape.]]

A type of landscape featuring natural formations that are the functional equivalents of theme park rides: Waterfalls, mountain torrents, glaciers or icebergs double as water slides, plot-sensitive erosion has created rock or snow formations that act as rollercoaster tracks or bobsled runs, complete with [[RampJump Ramp Jumps]], giant water lilies serve as trampolines or at least provide a fun and bouncy way to cross a stretch of water, hanging vines can be used as ropeways, swings, for bungee-jumping or Tarzan-style transportation and so on...

Alternatively, the setting can be industrial or urban, as long as the environment invites misuse as a carnival ride. This can be both BenevolentArchitecture or MalevolentArchitecture, depending on your viewpoint and if you [[WasntThatFun liked]] [[ImNotDoingThatAgain the "ride"]] or intended to take it in the first place.

Related to SkateHeavenIsAPlaceOnEarth. RollercoasterMine, {{Ramprovisation}} and LilyPadPlatform are subtropes. No relation of ThemeParkVersion.

See WatchingAVideoGame for the type of movie where this is popular.

!! Examples:

[[AC:{{Film}}]]
* ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'': Perhaps most [[{{Egregious}} Egregiously]], in the second movie there's actually a freestanding ice formation shaped like (and used as) a water slide complete with water mysteriously flowing from its highest point.
* The RollercoasterMine in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'', most obviously.
* Neverland in ''Film/{{Hook}}''.
* In Disney's ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' the winding, moss-covered branches become a sort of jungle skate park for the Ape Man to do some sick moves.

[[AC:VideoGames]]
* Almost any level from the Genesis era ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' titles would count; particularly the [[GreenHillZone Green]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zMHaHPXqqg Hill Zone]] with its rolling hills, spirals, and loops.
** On any console, really. ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' even has a ''highway'' with loops and jumps.
*** Speed Highway from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', which does the same. It makes one wonder how normal, everyday people in the Sonic Universe go about their day-to-day lives, especially when they're trying to get to work...
** ''VideoGame/SonicColors'' takes this to literal extremes with giant amusement park levels, such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMLrpnjwyTU Planet Wisp]], which is one in progress.

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]
* Several [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Wile E. Coyote]] cartoons feature this type of landscape, most notably when the gag involves a falling boulder or rocket skates.
* The chute system in the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' city of Omashu counts, since it's sorta like a giant slide and rollercoaster all in one. It was even shown that Aang and Bumi used to play on them when they were kids.
