Hey everyone i found this game called Boat Race GP. This game appeared at Tokyo Joypolis in 1996.

Boat Race GP is really obscure and rare. Is only exclusive to SEGA Tokyo Joypolis. It seems to be a nice attraction. According to Sustem 16,It utilizes on the Model 3 platform. A massive model 3 game like this should be elsewhere.

SEGA Retro and System 16 stated this game as a Model 3 game. I'm not sure which hardware is running on.

SEGA developed so many attractions for it's indoor parks. Some of the large attractions are mainly found in SEGA parks in the 90's
Here's the list
Image
Virtua Formula - The opening attraction of Joypolis, an enhanced version of Virtua Racing with up to 8 players each. It features a full-sized Formula 1 cockpit and 80-inch playback screens. This game had a dedicated room with 32 machines running.

Image
Rail Chase: the Ride - Based upon the SEGA arcade game Rail Chase. This is an interactive rollercoaster ride in which players must shoot targets as they travel.
Image
Ghost Hunters - A ride which places the players in a pitch black arena, using mirrors to display holographic ghost targets.
Image
Mad Bazooka - An indoor bumper car ride in which two teams of 6 players fire rubber balls at each other. Balls fire at the rate of 8 shots per second through a tank cannon, while the bumper cars have the ability to pick up the balls off the floor.
Astronomicon - An astrology-based interactive theatre that tells fortunes and reads horoscopes to an audience of up to 50 people.

Image
AS-1 - A 360-degree motion simulator. It has two known games. Megalopolis: Tokyo City Battle and Micheal Jackson in scramble training.
Image
VR-1 Space Mission - A virtual reality space mission accommodating 8 people per machine which allows players to pilot their own space ship with twin yokes.

VR-1 looks amazing to play. It looks very interesting. While the SEGA VR headset was canceled,SEGA implemented the technology on the VR-1 attraction. Is hard to say if any AS-1's are still around.

Sega had another game called Power Sled released around the same time in many Sega-owned arcade/amusement parks. I heard the game wasn't very good as far as controls. It was a Model 2C-CRX game I believe.
This Boat Race GP game is definitely something interesting, though.

I'm not quite sure if Power Sled and older SEGA attractions exist nowadays(Mad Bazooka no longer exist along with VR-1). I wish i play it too.

I was once told I would receive a dump of a special edition version of Fighting Vipers 2 that was used in a Japanese tournament but that never came through. Games like this, that were present in only one or two special locations, are unlikely to ever get dumped because they probably don't physically exist anymore and were scrapped years ago.

Back when Sega ruled the world. Not like the hollow facsimile of Sega of old they are today...
