Floating Steps is the new first obstacle introduced in American Ninja Warrior 8 for the city course. It's similar to the Quad Steps which is used for three seasons and Quintuple Steps which is used for four seasons, but there are a few key differences.
- There are still five steps, but much smaller and each one is higher up than the last.
- As they raise in height they also get steeper much like Sonic Curve.
- After the fifth step, they must jump to a hanging rope and swing to a platform to clear the obstacle.
