We are the largest Sensory Deprivation Tank Center in the US. Ask Us Anything!
We run Float On, a float tank (or sensory deprivation tank) center in Portland, OR.
If you've never heard of float tanks before, they are basically like a giant, perfect bath tubs that hold about 10" of water with 850 lbs. of Epsom Salt mixed in. This makes you float in a near zero-gravity environment while you lie in the water (it's twice as buoyant as the dead sea).
The water is your skin-temperature, so you can't feel where it's touching you, and the tanks are completely soundproof and lightproof, meaning you're floating in complete nothingness.
We have 6 float tanks, and have run over 25,000 floats in our 2.5 years of being open.
We're big fans of nothing, and we're here to tell you everything about it.

Arlight Reddit, we're done for the night. Thanks for all the great questions, and we hope you all go find a place near you to float. If you have any more questions, feel free to PM us, and we'll try to get back to you. Float On!
