WaveRunner was designed in a cabinet that resembled an actual WaveRunner model. The game features three courses: "Novice", "Intermediate", and "Expert". The gameplay focuses on being more of straight racing game, like most Model 2 racing games, but you do tricks on ramps. WaveRunner wasn't ported to any home systems. This game is emulated on the Model 2 Emulator by ELSemi.
A sequel, WaveRunner GP, was released in 2001 and used the NAOMI hardware.
