Rail Chase: The Ride (レールチェイス ザ ライド) is a medium-scale rollercoaster attraction developed by Sega based on the arcade game of the same name.

Installments

Yokohama Joypolis

The first installment of the attraction was at the first Joypolis venue in Yokohama during the park's opening in July 1994.[1]. It closed with the closure of the venue in February 2001.

Tokyo Joypolis

The second installment of the ride that was installed was at the Tokyo Joypolis, also opening with the park in July 1996.

In 1999, the ride was rethemed and renamed to "Speed Boarder" and then in 2006 as "Spin Bullet". The coaster was removed in 2011 in order to make way for a new coaster for the park's 2012 revamp, called Veil of Dark.

Sega World Sydney/Haailand

The last and currently only operating installment of the ride is the version used at Sega World Sydney, which operated for the entire life of the park's duration from March 1997 until November 2000.

After the park closed, both this ride alongside Ghost Hunters were sold to an Indian theme park called Haailand, where the ride continues to operate to this day under the "Rail Chase" name, abit without any affiliation to Sega or the game the ride was based on, instead focusing on a standalone storyline.
