Yellow Gears investigate problems at a new ocean theme park.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]


The Yellow Gears team find their Red Wings counterparts asleep in a corridor after a night that included a burning tower block, a forest fight and an explosion at a fireworks factory. They help settle the group into bed properly just as an alarm goes off. Fortunately for Red Wings, it's Yellow Gears who are needed, and the Drill Team is sent into action in Gear Dump. Their destination is Marine Park, a new ocean theme park that has reported it is shaking repeatedly; unknown to anyone, a Gura Gorro has fired throwing stars into one of its' supports. However, the park's director is unhappy with their presence, believing it will hurt business on the opening day. The problem has been reported by one of the zookeepers, and she implores the director to allow Yellow Gears to investigate but he refuses. Ken suggests they buy tickets and enter as customers instead, but they only have enough cash for two to go in. Sayuri and Daichi go in, much to the irritation of the director. Initially they find little evidence of anything wrong, but do enjoy looking at the penguins. [Shō and Ken meanwhile settle down for a picnic outside with Drill Robo. Below, the Gura Gorro continues to covertly damage the support, and this time Daichi and Sayuri feel the vibration. They report back to Marie Bitou at Rescue Headquarters and recommend immediate evacuation of the park. She agrees but the Gura Gurro then destroys the support entirely, sending the Marine Park listing.


Daichi is still inside while Sayuri, Ken and Shō are in the park's control room, where they find several of the viewing lifts are stuck underwater with limited air. Shō heads down to the water to investigate and believes that the park's dolphins are trying to warn everyone of something below. He dives down but is surprised when the Gura Gorro appears from hiding and wrecks another of the park's supports as Drill Robo does his best to hold the structure level. The Guro Gorro targets him with the attack instead as Shō reports in and Daichi hatches a plan, sending Sayuri back to Gear Dump after opening the water gate. Watching from Rescue Headquarters, Jet Robo is able to nag Taiyoh awake and they set off to back up Yellow Gears, followed by the Wing Liner. Gura Gorro tries to press home his attack before the water is drained but Jet turns up in time to protect his comrade, before Fire Robo takes over supporting the tower. The water level is low enough to allow Jet to reach those in the lifts while Drill is free to face off against Gura Gorro in a ZONE. Meanwhile Ken and Sayuri switch Gear Dump to Gear Dump Robo mode as Fire Robo is struggling to hold the support. The massive robot is easily able to support the park before it tips into the sea and even move it back into level position, allowing Daichi to finish evacuating the visitors. Meanwhile after being switched to Hyper Mode, Drill Robo makes short work of Gura Gorro. Both teams return home - with the Red Wings team asleep at the controls, while Daichi's confidence has been boosted by the successful operation.
