** In the original game, there is a sandcastle in a pool of water that one has to drain to enter (while it's accessible with the water present, it's of no use in that case). Inside it is a letter grid drawn in the floor that is used for a spelling puzzle needed to earn a PlotCoupon and, more famously, to input the game's {{Classic Cheat Code}}s.

''Fictional'' sandcastles, however, don't have pesky things like drying out or the loose structual integrity of sand to worry about, so they are often the size of ''actual'' castles--or at least small cottages. If they're not simply for show, people may often go inside them and actually hang out inside the sandcastle with total disregard for the risk of it simply ''collapsing'' on top of them: people tend to forget that sand is ''heavy'' and ending up buried beneath the remains of a giant sandcastle would most certainly suffocate them...

* In "WesternAnimation/TheAntAndTheAardvark'' short "Dune Bug", the ant builds a sandcastle on the beach and moves into it. Of course, this is just a normal-sized sandcastle, but an ant is very small, so...
* In ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', the "Operation B.E.A.C.H." features King Sandy, a boy who kidnaps Numbuh 3 and takes her to his palace, an enormous sandcastle.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' episode "Sand Castles in the Sand", Sponge and Patrick get into a dispute while building sandcastles. As the dispute escalates, their castles become much, ''much'' bigger to the point they end up as big as actual fortresses.

* Several ephemeral sand ''hotels'' were created the past few years, such as Kurrawa Beach's [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-4898134/The-hostel-Australia-s-Gold-Coast-s-SAND.html Sand Hostel]] in Australia and Nederland's [[http://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/sand-hotels-netherlands/index.html Zand Hotel]]. The latter even had electricity! Note their walls were reinforced so they woumd not collapse on guests. The Sand Hostel's bedrooms also did not have a sand roof, and its communal rooms didn't have any roof at all for the same reason.
