La Bomba is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 7. Its name is Spanish for "the bomb"; it is also a pun on the Mexican folk song "La Bamba", best known for its association with Ritchie Valens, one of its most noted performers.
The solo character's objective is to drop Bob-ombs on the other three players and try to eliminate them. The large conveyor belts carry boxes in different directions, and ground-pounding the switches opens the boxes and releases the Bob-ombs inside. The gray boxes hold only one Bob-omb, the green boxes hold two, and the red boxes hold four; the Bob-ombs either walk in place or actively chase one of the team players.
The team players' objective is to avoid being eliminated by the Bob-ombs and the three spiked spinners on the stage. Making contact with a spinner will immediately eliminate that player, as will being caught in a Bob-omb's explosion; players are also eliminated immediately if a Bob-omb lands on top of them.
If the solo player eliminates all of their opponents within 30 seconds, they win. If at least one of the team's players survives long enough, their team wins.
