The episode starts off at SpongeBob's house, SpongeBob is reading a book in his library. Suddenly, a roller coaster crashes through the wall, arriving from Glove World! The furious riders state that they are glad Glove World! is closing down, at which SpongeBob screams, and goes to tell Patrick, who jumps out of his shower (naked), and they decide to visit Glove World! for one last time.
Arriving at Glove World!, they meet the ticket man, who tells them again that Glove World! is closing down for good. SpongeBob and Patrick promptly scream again and enter the amusement park after wondering why it is going to be closed down and reciting glove-related poems. They decide to ride the amusement rides one more time to remember the park by. They first enter the tea cups, which promptly injures them. They also enter other rides such as the Glove Drop, and Pirate Ship which all injure the riders. Once going on the Ferris Wheel, the ride derails and rides like a wheel. SpongeBob and Patrick mostly ignore it, stating that it was fun, although they eventually realize Glove World! is closing down because of these health violations.
After realizing the danger of Glove World's rides, SpongeBob and Patrick attempt to rebuild the rides to save the park. Their first attempt is the Hall Of Mirrors, where SpongeBob tries to replace the broken mirrors by twisting into the shape of the user. However, this backfires when an ugly fish sees herself and punches SpongeBob thinking he was the mirror, injuring him again. Meanwhile, after the current mascot of Glove World! quits, Patrick tries the job but fails due to him stealing a child's ice cream and cutting in line. SpongeBob tries to work on the chairlift but ends up having the ride go too fast. They also attempt to stop a roller coaster's riders from falling into the sand, but they end up doing it anyway.
During the time, Glove World! is destroyed. SpongeBob and Patrick are saddened and decide to defend it by chaining themselves to the entrance. However, they then find out from the Glove World! Owner that it's closing down to open Glove Universe. Seeing the new amazing park, SpongeBob and Patrick want to go, as SpongeBob asks Patrick where the key is and a confused Patrick asks what he's talking about before SpongeBob reminds him of the key that he gave him that will free them. Patrick then remembers and says that SpongeBob told him to keep it in a safe place as SpongeBob asks where it is. Patrick reveals that he has thrown the key for the chains into Glove Lake, where he states nobody will ever find it as he took SpongeBob's words seriously.
SpongeBob falls silent with a blank expression on his face, after realizing that Patrick had stupidly trapped them at the Glove World entrance. Because of this, SpongeBob does not answer when he is called out by Patrick, as the episode ends.
