The AS-1 or Advanced System-1 is an interactive motion simulator attraction developed by Sega AM5. Released in March 1993, it was frequently installed in the company’s flagship arcade venues such as Joypolis and SegaWorld.
The AS-1 is a medium-sized motion simulator with an eight player capacity. Hydraulics tilt the ride in accordance to the on-screen movement.
Using each seat’s joystick and dual buttons, players are occasionally prompted to shoot down incoming spacecraft and other obstacles.
Michael Jackson was involved in the production of both ride films for the hardware; he played a small role in Megalopolis: Tokyo City Battle and would star in the titular Michael Jackson in Scramble Training. In late 1992, while Jackson was in Japan for his Dangerous World Tour, he met with Sega of Japan and worked with developers Sega AM5 as a celebrity actor for the upcoming motion simulator.
