The SpongeBob: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated puzzle the Rolling Ball Room requires players to roll a ball into a hole by guiding it along a track and activating switches in the Mermalair. This will let you gain another Golden Spatula in the level.
It can be difficult to get the ball to get it where you want to go, so let’s look at how to easily complete the Rolling Ball Room puzzle.
How to complete the Rolling Ball Room in SpongeBob: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated
In order to complete the Rolling Ball Room puzzle in SpongeBob: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, you must guide the ball from its opening tunnel through to the hole located at the end of the track.
To do this, you will need to activate various sections of the track while the ball rolls alongside it.
Step 1: Rotate the platform
The first step is the easiest. Use your Bubble Bowling move to activate the switch at the top of the red ramp, which will drop the ball onto the track. Next, you must use your Bubble Bowling move on one of the arms of the wheel on the floor, turning it clockwise.
Make sure you do this after the ball has started rolling along the track, to ensure it has enough time to roll across.
Step 2: Use the scoop
Next, you must jump on top of the scoop and hammer and face the metal cog. Watch as the ball continues rolling along the track, and before it reaches the curve in the track, use your Bubble Bowling move to move the scoop towards it.
The scoop will take a short while to lift the ball onto the next part of the track, so you should position yourself on the switch on the floor.
Step 3: Bubble Bowling the red scoop
After you’ve made your way to the switch on the floor, standing on it will open up a gate to a Bubble Bowling switch.
Wait for the ball to go along the track and until it reaches the structure in the center of the room. Once it starts rotating around this structure along the track, use your Bubble Bowling move to activate the switch and get the red scoop to rotate.
Next, make your way to the next switch alongside the track and step on it to lift up the platform. Keep following the track around until you reach the next switch you need to activate with your Bubble Bowling move. This will raise the hammer swinging above the track, allowing the ball to drop onto the final moveable platform.
Step 4: Ball control
Now for the most difficult part of the puzzle. The ball will drop onto a platform you control by stepping on it. To tilt the platform left, move left, and to tilt it right, move right.
The ball will enter the platform with some force, so stand to the left of it as it drops. Next, quickly move to the right so that it rolls between the two holes. The ball needs to reach the top-right hole. When it does so, the fan on the platform to the right will start spinning. Time your Bubble Bowling move so that it hits the switch in order to complete the Rolling Ball Room puzzle and get the Golden Spatula.
