Video game

Bikini Bottom 500 is a SpongeBob SquarePants Plug It In & Play motion racing video game that was released in June 15, 2009. The controller is motion-sensitive, allowing the players to control their boatmobile.


For each course (track), the player will compete against five computer players (Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and Plankton) to win a trophy by finishing first, second, or third to make three laps around the course. The player must also dodge obstacles, such as jellyfish and rocks, as well as ones laid down by the competitors (see below). When the player runs into an obstacle, their boatmobile receives some damage. If the boatmobile receives too much damage, they will forfeit the race.

There are also UltiMotion minigames in each course, requiring players to do what the activity on-screen says to do. Another minigame is optional for adding health to the boatmobile, similar to the UltiMotion events.
