This video does not show the floor in action which everyone is still wondering about.

My god people is the floor that big of a deal. It's a FLOOR. It doesn't bother the ride. Sorry Chris, but I want to know what the ride experience is. I loved those videos though, Delerium is going to be one of the best rides in the park.

The floor? What does the floor do? Will it have sparkly lights on it or move up and down or something?

It'll PROBABLY drop down somehow.

I can't wait to ride this thing now. I love Afterburner's, like Frisbee's, and was a bit disappointed in the Gyro Swing (the one at Drayton Manor, at least, didn't rotate that much while swinging)

The floor will drop down, then split apart, like pieces of a pie.

thanks Shagster. So it will drop down like Face/Off than pull apart. Sounds great.

If any of you are interested I was on the Intamin web site (I like to look at what each company makes other than rides) and they are working on a water ride with a launch system. So i guess there really is going to be a launched water ride! Here's the link http://www.webautor.ch/intamin/i_news.asp

I'm thinking drop and fold or rotate or something. Its just fun to talk about.

Are you sure, Shaggy?? The description I heard from Jeff Siebert at No Coaster made it seem like the floor did all that and oh so much more ;)

Basically, imagine a radial version of a B&M floorless floor.

It is kind of hard to explain exactly what I understand it to be.

I guess a more accurate description of what I envision would be something like a camera shutter, where the floor drops, then the "curved" pie pieces rotate open.

But it could be as simple as the pie pieces folding downward.

Just watch your toes;-)

From what I understand, Huss insisted on the floor being complicated. The park wanted something that people could just leave their shoes, and backpacks etc on, and it would lower into a pit during the ride. Not so.

Not trying to jinx things here, but IMO, if this ride has downtime issues (and prototypes usually do) the complicated floor system may be the root of many of them.

Interesting. I guess Huss wanted something flashy. One would certainly think a simple drop-down would be more reliable.

From the pieces I saw in the parking lot and the pictures on the PKI website this is how I think it will operate.

If you notice the pictures of the steel structure going in below the seating area, they are shaped like a triangle. I'm guesing that the floor just goes around the seating ring and is open in the middle since no one can actually get to it. When the floor drops, the parts of the floor closest to you will actually drop down while the part farthest from you won't really go anywhere. Simply, when they fold down they will form a funnel type shape, thus all belongings left would slide down to bottom and fall off, and not come back up.

This picture shows the floor supports on the truck. From what I can tell the tallest part is the outer part that will just remain still and serve as the pivit point. The hydrolic cylinder will attach to the bottom of the floor to move it up an down, and the short posts closest to the camera are the resting stubs for when the floor is in the lowered position.
