Glove World was a theme park in Bikini Bottom. The park first appeared in the episode "Rock Bottom," where SpongeBob and Patrick had just spent the day there.

Patrick were afraid to ride the Fiery Fist 'O Pain. They decided to get a picture taken with Glovey Glove, but Patrick was afraid of him. Eventually, Patrick got close enough to Glovey Glove to get his picture taken.
The Mitten is a children's ride. SpongeBob and Patrick used to love the ride. When they rode the ride in "Roller Cowards," they were scared when the car went up and down the small hill. The child who went on the ride with them was less scared, almost to the point of boredom. The Mitten is a tiny roller coaster for infants, with a mitten in the background and a sign displaying the name. There are love heart balloons surrounding it and clouds that lead up to the display of the name. It is easily operated by Nat who simply pulls the lever and the cart travels extremely slowly across the track.
Fiery Fist O' Pain is the largest roller coaster in Glove World, which was opened in the episode, "Roller Cowards." However it also appeared in the Season 1 episode, "Rock Bottom." A warning sign informs the riders that the ride may cause crying, screaming, projectile vomiting, amnesia, spine loss (most common side effect), embarrassing accidents, uncontrollable gas, and explosive diarrhea.
