Firstly, it took about +2yrs at that time to go from Arcade to Console. They didnt release games at the same exact time, else Ops NEVER would have bought the hyper expensive machines.

The thought was that Ops Should be able to make the money back and have profit on top of that before the games hit the console market. And, that the continued draw on location could still generate more income after the fact.

A game like Rush 2049 Is a good game, and still gets plays on location even after its console releases. Terminator 2, the ol gun game... also still got a lot of play in the arcade - ages after its release. MK 3, again still getting plays even after console releases. Reduced of course, due to other newer arcade fighters getting attention.

Daytona USA on location, still gets decent earnings today.
Hydra Thunder? sits there collecting dust.

The main reason why consoles started to become more popular was not just because of graphical superiority, or poorly maintained equipment... but because there were home games that had some actual depth of skill needed to work them... AND there were some really original games out there. All the originality pretty much died in the arcade industry before the 90s.

Offroad & Hydra Thunder are just Sh@t games. They are boring, easy, and Ugly. Given the choice of getting a free arcade machines, a person will Opt to get a Daytona USA over the both Hydra & Offroad Thunder any day of the week.
Make that comparison with almost any decent game made, and you will end up with the same results. Crap is Crap Period.
