SpongeBob SquarePants Rock Bottom Plunge is an indoor roller coaster located in the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota. It’s indoors so the height is limited to a mere 67 feet, but it boasts a steep 97 degree drop and a vertical leap. It only goes 40 miles per hour, but it seems to go faster than that. It’s a short but exhilarating ride. It’s not the best coaster I’ve been on, but it’s one of the most memorable. My favorite part is the ascent, where you slowly climb up at a nearly ninety degree angle. You start to question your decision to ride it as you steadily rise up to the roof of the mall, but there’s no escape so you just have to embrace your fear and try to survive the first plunge. If you don’t hurl right then and there, the rest of the ride is amazingly fun. Hopefully nobody hurls on you.
