The Revenge of Cobra, Part 5:
Amusement Park of Terror

10th of 10 Sunbow episodes before Season 1. Written by Ron Friedman. First aired September 14, 1984.

Previous episode: The Revenge of Cobra, Part 4
Followed by: Sunbow Season 1 Opening Sequence

Lady Jaye rescues Flint's team from the ice as Joe and Cobra return to their respective bases. When Zartan offers the laser core to the highest bidder, his broadcast allows both sides to trace his location. As the Joes prepare their assault, Storm Shadow steals the ion correlator from Joe Headquarters and Destro's forces overrun Zartan's amusement park hideout. Zartan surrenders, giving Cobra all three components of the Weather Dominator, which is quickly reassembled.

Meanwhile, Duke, Snake Eyes, Roadblock, and Honda Lou escape from the Arena of Sport, and Duke plants a homing device allowing the Joe Team to locate the Cobra temple. The Joes' assault on the temple is hindered by the Weather Dominator until the escaped captives procure creeper vines and plant them at the base of the Dominator. Thanks to the vines, Cobra's defenses collapse and the Joes quickly move in. Cobra Commander, caught in the vines, is taken into custody, but Destro again escapes, this time with Zartan hitching a ride on his glider. Breaker uses the Weather Dominator to return the world's weather to normal...almost.
