R-360 is an air combat simulator where players ride in the cabinet that simulates the movements of a jet fighter and makes 360 degree rotations.
The cabinet has specially designed security features to assure rider and viewer safety. Included are an attendant station, a seat belt, shoulder restraints, a player-actuated emergency stop button, safety sensors, and a plexiglass security fence.
This unique cabinet is used to run enhanced versions of G-LOC or Strike Fighter (1991).
