FACTS brings ‘Beauty’ AND ‘The Beast’ to Ghent!

Actress Emilie de Ravin and the world’s biggest inflatable at FACTS Spring 2018!

The newest additions to the FACTS total experience are known: actress Emilie de Ravin and the world's biggest bouncy castle. 


First off, we have Emilie de Ravin, the actress who portrays Disney princess Belle in the ABC series Once Upon a Time. This ‘Beauty’ waltzes to Ghent for photoshoots, signing sessions and panels.

Emilie de Ravin is also known as Claire Littleton in Lost, as Tess Harding in Roswell, as Brenda Carter in The Hills Have Eyes (2006) and many more series and movies. 
Emilie de Ravin will be present on both days in Flanders Expo Ghent. 


Next up, we have ‘The Beast’, the biggest inflatable obstacle course – aka bouncy castle – in the world! With its 272 meter, 6.000 kilograms and two million litres of air, it is as fearsome as it is fantastic. 

In 2017, The Beast was an immensely popular activity, with thousands of fans and cosplayers trying to slay this monster.

For 2018, it has apparently found its Hydra powers. After cutting off the head, it just had another head growing back. And now there's two of them.

In other words: The Beast is split in two to give even more people a chance to conquer it more quickly during the FACTS weekend.

Fans who want to meet Beauty and/or slay The Beast should head to FACTS Spring 2018, on April 7-8, in Flanders Expo, Ghent.
