SpongeBob is telling Gary a bedtime story, but Patrick holding a small TV trespasses into SpongeBob's house and shows him an important commercial for Glove World's new scary rollercoaster called "The Fiery Fist O' Pain." They plan to go on it at Glove World the next day.
That night, SpongeBob has a nightmare that he and Patrick go on the ride and fall into their graves. SpongeBob wakes up and he said that he does not want to go on the Fiery Fist O' Pain.
The next day, Patrick breaks into SpongeBob's bedroom strangely after having the same nightmare at the same time but they decide not to tell each other. The bus then came and they went to Glove World.
They realized that it is a long line to the new so they decide to start going on the ride for toddlers called "The Mitten" which they're scared of because of the small lump annoying the toddler who is on the ride with them.
Just then, they saw Larry that went on the ride. SpongeBob said that he did not go on the ride because he was hungry along with Patrick!
Soon, they eat Ice Cream. Patrick has to use the bathroom and argues with the Reflection in the mirror while SpongeBob and his Ice Cream get into an argument. Patrick and SpongeBob want to tell to each other, but Glove World will close in 5 minutes. Hearing that, they finally go on the Fiery Fist O' Pain, but the ride is broken and they tell each other that they were actually afraid to go on. The ride was fixed and they ride the rollercoaster. They lose their spines at the end of the ride and choose to go again anyway.
There may have originally been a scene planned where SpongeBob and Patrick were going to print the tickets online. However, in the commentary this information came from, the commentators laughed about this, meaning it might have been a joke.
The Mitten scene was based of Kings' experience with kiddie rides as a child.
Patrick's fear of Glovey Glove might be loosely based off how Brookshier got his Adam's apple pushed by a mascot when Brookshier and the mascot were taking a picture.
