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 title of the Mexican folk song "La Bamba," best known for its association with Ritchie Valens and later covered by Los Lobos.
The solo player's objective is to drop Bob-ombs on the other three players and try to eliminate them. The team players' objective is to avoid the Bob-ombs and the three spiked spinners on the stage. The large conveyor belts carry boxes in different directions, and the solo player must ground-pound the switches to open the boxes and release 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. Being caught in a Bob-omb's explosion will immediately eliminate that player, as will having a Bob-omb land on top of them. Players are also eliminated immediately if they make contact with a spinner. If the solo player eliminates all of their opponents within 30 seconds, the solo player wins. If at least one of the team players survives long enough, the team wins.
