Not sure if I understand your question but on the only floorless four wide row coaster I have been on (Superman at SFOG) there is a chequer plate plate platform which raises and lowers pneumatically directly below the parked train, you walk onto that and once ready for despatch this platform drops and off you go. Hope that helps.

Yeah, that sounds about right, for B&M floorless anyway. This picture isn't the best for showing the platform, but hope it helps. Click here. (Source: RCDB).

In other words, it's the the exact same platform used for Lethal Weapon. I went on Scream @ SFMM - one of the best types of coaster i've been on so far. :)
Actually, they are quite different, the one for LW is just one big flat platform that moves up and down vertically and nothing else. For floorless coasters, its made out of metal as DjSupersleuth said, but its split down the middle into two halves that meet to form the floor you can walk on to load in, when the train needs to leave the floor splits and folds down either side of the track into a vertical position out of the way. Here is a set of images taken from www.themeparkreivew.com 's onride video of Daemon that shows it in action. post-88-1176628965_thumb.jpg
