but why waste so much money on a cheap gimmick? it's not going add much to the ride experience is it? I'd rather see the money spent on sprucing up X Sector...
I know this topic is about whether or not you'd like to see it, but I just don't see the point in a Floorless Oblivion! the rides too short and not enough happens, not to mention it would make no difference whatsoever to the ride experience...
I doubt it would ever go floorless. The duration of the ride is too short to make such a substantial purchase worthwhile. I would like to see it, but like already mentioned it wouldn't really add to the effect.
Anyway Oblivion wouldn't be Oblivion if it did go floorless. It's a world's first, and should stay that way.
I don't think there would be any point in it becoming floorless though. The origional Oblivion is great as it is, and there is no need to change it at all. And like someone has already said, it would take a lot of work aswell.

think leave as is 4 now. maybe in few yrs. wot they shud do is extend the track underground. a helix or sumfin but not tell ne1 so that ne1 goin on for the 20th time's scared out they're brains! know they won't but wud be v v funny!
I still like my rebranding of the ride, featuring the back row to be reversed making the ride available to ride both forwards and backwards. Seating would be effectively back to back and the backwards choice would be branded as "Oblivious" :twisted:
I say keep it as original aswell, Floorless never really interested me and it would sound like Alton Towers is trying to get success from other coasters that have gone floorless, but I may be wrong there.
Maybe at the exit of the tunnel, the track could flatten out at ground level and do an intense high-g helix, then a tall turn into the brakes as normal. So you would get the zero-g sensation while falling before the tunnel, then again after it as you level out, then be pile-driven back into your seat to finish off
