Two screens, both front and back are in 3D with your cart in between, moving you back and forth, also rotating you 180degrees sharply everytime there’s an incoming attack from either side.

The Rainbow Bridge connects Odaiba to the rest of Tokyo. The two story bridge is an iconic symbol of the bay and is especially beautiful during its nightly illumination.
The bridge supports an expressway, a regular road, the Yurikamome line and pedestrian walkways along both sides.
