While at Cannes, Kendall takes to the Mediterranean WaveRunner-style with a bit of H2Overdrive mixed in

Looks like Jenner's passion for muscle cars brought some muscle to the open water.
WaveRunner arcade flyer Kendall looks like she's going at it hardcore. It reminds me of some of the sit-on arcade cabinets like Sega's Wave Runner or Raw Thrill's H2Overdrive. A local theater has a head-2-head Arctic Thunder for a frozen version.

Wave Runner was released in 1996 as a single-player game, although up to four cabinets can be networked for multi-player. The game features Yamaha Jet Skis since they were a sponsor of the game. I've read that the sit-on portion of the game is an actual Yamaha Jet Ski body.

Adding some crazy to the waterborne games, H2Overdrive was another favorite. Though more of a racing boat game, rather than jet ski, it's cockpit setup with steering wheel and shifter with thumb-button was a ton of fun. Gotta love the speakers mounted behind your head in te seat and the sub-woofer! A local arcade used to have two of these, but they've been replaced with lesser versions of what qualifies as an arcade game.

As arcades phase out fun games like Wave Rummer and H2Overdrive, I'll have to live vicariously through Kendall Jenner tearing up the high seas on a Jet Ski.
