Glove World! was a popular theme park in Bikini Bottom, popular with SpongeBob and Patrick. It first appears in the episode "Rock Bottom," and closed down in the episode "Glove World R.I.P."

It was later replaced by a larger version, Glove Universe.



Glove World! sold various glove-themed products, including glovesicles, glove-shaped balloons, glove lights, glove action figures, gloves for glove action figures, glove hats, glove candy dispensers, and glove-flavored glove candy.

Glove World! had a mascot, Glovey Glove. He appears in "Roller Cowards" when SpongeBob and Patrick are afraid to ride the Fiery Fist O' Pain. They decide to get a picture taken with Glovey Glove, but Patrick is afraid of him. Eventually, Patrick gets close enough to Glovey Glove to get his picture taken.


"Rock Bottom"

The park's first appearance is in the episode "Rock Bottom." SpongeBob and Patrick are shown outside of Glove World!. Patrick is licking a glove treat and SpongeBob is holding a Glove Balloon. SpongeBob mentions "Another fun-tastic day at Glove World!." This implies that they spent the day there and that they have been there before. SpongeBob and Patrick get on a bus, leaving Glove World!. SpongeBob mentions Glove World! and uses products from the park throughout the rest of the episode.

"Roller Cowards"

It appears as the main location of this episode. The reason that SpongeBob and Patrick go here is because of a new ride "The Fiery Fist O' Pain" opening up. This is the first appearance of the inside of the park.

SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis

It then is mentioned in SpongeBob's Director's Commentary. SpongeBob mentions that the "Snap Happy!" level was originally going to take place at Glove World!. He also reveals that Glove World! was, at the time, his favorite theme park.

"The Abrasive Side"

SpongeBob tried to be first in line for the bus to Glove World!, but many other people cut in front of SpongeBob, causing him and Patrick to be last in line. Sandy then comes and asks SpongeBob to help her with an experiment, and SpongeBob tells Patrick that he will ride the next bus to Glove World!. Short after, SpongeBob keeps getting distracted by his other friends and eventually loses the chance of going to Glove World! with Patrick.

"Tunnel of Glove"

Glove World! then appears as the only location. In this episode, SpongeBob and Pearl get trapped inside of a ride called "The Tunnel of Glove." Meanwhile, Patrick tries to save SpongeBob, but ends up making things worse.

"Glove World R.I.P."

In this episode, Glove World! is planned to be shut down. SpongeBob and Patrick attempt to save it, including chaining themselves up to the walls so Glove World! would not be destroyed, which fails. Patrick and SpongeBob are later upset that they could not save the park. However, the owner tells SpongeBob and Patrick that the reason Glove World! was shut down was that it was replaced by Glove Universe, a safer and bigger version of Glove World!.

Parts of Glove World! appear in the Valentine's Day version.

"Don't Wake Patrick"

While Patrick is sleepwalking, he wanders into Glove World and unknowingly walks onto the track of a roller coaster, with SpongeBob following him inside of a car. They are then launched off the track and land next to Patrick's rock.

Rides and attractions

  • The Mitten was 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 were love heart balloons surrounding it and clouds that lead up to the display of the name. It was easily operated by Nat who simply pulls the lever and the cart travels extremely slowly across the track.

  • Fiery Fist O' Pain was the largest roller coaster in Glove World!, which was opened in the episode "Roller Cowards." However it also appeared in the episode "Rock Bottom." A warning sign informed 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. Riders must wear helmets, be taped to the seat, and signed a waiver (in case of accidental spine loss) before riding. Some people did lose their spines while riding, including SpongeBob and Patrick.
  • Ferris wheel was a regularly seen ride.
  • Merry-Go-Round was a regularly seen ride.
  • Swings was a regularly seen ride.
  • Big Dipper was a regularly seen ride.
  • Tunnel of Glove was a ride in which SpongeBob, Pearl, and her friends rode on in the episode of the same name. 3 hours later, Perch Perkins on the news noticed that the Tunnel of Glove has been turned to the Tunnel of Terror.

  • Unnamed cafe that sold ice cream, where SpongeBob and Patrick went to eat at in "Roller Cowards."
  • Drop Tower
  • Glove Drop
  • Tilt-A-Hurl
  • Hall of Mirrors was an attracted that showed wacky mirrors to make everyone look funny. However, it was defective and the mirrors break. SpongeBob and Patrick tried fixing this by "improving" it by making SpongeBob squish himself into the person that passes by.
  • Glove Castle was a castle that was considered to be a playground with Glove Lake in front of it.
  • Various tents.
  • The Neck Breaker was a roller coaster that Patrick sleepwalks to in "Don't Wake Patrick."


  • Glove Hats
  • Glove Action Figures - there are also gloves for those action figures.
  • Glove-lights - a flashlight that only appears in "Rock Bottom." It looks similar to a normal flashlight, except a glove covers its light. SpongeBob is the only person known to own one. His glove-light burns out when he is waiting for the bus at the bus station.
  • Glove Balloons - an off-white colored balloon with four digits extending from its top and marked with three grooves. It resembles its namesake, a glove, and is a merchandise of Glove World!. Its first appearance is in the episode "Rock Bottom," in which it pops at the end of the episode.
  • Glove Candy Dispenser - the candy dispenser is in the shape of a glove, and the candy is glove-flavored.

  • Glove World!'s name is a parody of Disney World, but its design is based off of Disneyland.[1]
  • The Tunnel of Glove is a parody of "Tunnel of Love."
  • Nat has been seen to operate many rides. He is seen controlling the Mitten ride, collects tickets and brings Tunnel of Glove riders to their ride.
  • There is a LEGO set for Glove World! which includes the Ferris wheel and ice cream stand.
  • Patrick is scared of Glovey in "Roller Cowards." However, in "Glove World R.I.P.," Patrick actually wants to be Glovey, and the owner lets him.
  • In "Roller Cowards," SpongeBob and Patrick treated the bathroom as a ride, even though it was not.
  • In two episodes, the Glove World! entrance is seen using bricks, but in two other episodes, the entrance is seen using poles.
  • Though Glove World! is closed in the episode "Glove World R.I.P.", it reappears in the later episode "Don't Wake Patrick". This is probably a continuity error or "Don't Wake Patrick" takes place before "Glove World R.I.P.", or Glove World probably reopened afterwards.
