Dennou Senki Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram Special (電脳戦機バーチャロン オラトリオ・タングラム スペシャル) was a medium-scale attraction based on Dennou Senki Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram M.S.B.S. Ver. 5.2 that was available at Joypolis venues in the late 1990s.

Running on Model 3 hardware like the original game, the attraction is believed to have used a cut-down version of Oratorio Tangram. It retained 2-player functionality with the inclusion of two linked units, and an extra 50 inch projection screen displaying gameplay stationed between them.

The design of the units took inspiration from the older R360, something noted in coverage of the attraction. However, their range of motion was significantly smaller, allowing for only 30 degrees of left and right rotation on one axis, as well as limited seat movement of 5cm in four directions.

History

Virtual-On Special debuted at Umeda Joypolis on its opening day of 28 November 1998. Its time at the location was short, and by 18 April 1999 had been relocated to Shinjuku Joypolis[1]. It is thought to have been removed a few months before the venue's permanent closure in August 2000, and no subsequent records exist of it appearing in any other Joypolis locations.
