This was my second time going, which I knew what to expect. I totally appreciated the experience of weightlessness, quietness and senselessness. I was in room 5. Thank you.

Very clean, super friendly staff. Privacy respected. Total time was 90 min. Clearly explained what to expect so you could thoroughly enjoy the float experience. Tourists receive a discount! Can’t wait for my next float.

The last time I floated was in 1980... The Float House Victoria does not disappoint, it is peaceful, clean and well thought out. After my 90 minute session I emerged from the float and realized I would be taking part in this more often now,...More

Having floated before but not really liking it, it is somewhat strange that I went to a new place. I am so glad that I did! Instead of being too hot with no idea when the float was supposed to end, the water temperature was...More

Hello! We are very sorry that you felt claustrophobic inside the tank. Although these tanks are very spacious and easy to enter/exit, this is an issue that we speak about very often with our guests. What's interesting, is that many people with severe claustrophobia can...More
