BVAfter two years of absence due to corona, the Sinksenfoor started again this afternoon in Antwerp. The largest traveling amusement park in our country, with more than 150 attractions and food stalls, guarantees fun and feasting more than ever before. And that is a combination that is very popular with the BVs. From ‘Family’ actors to former misses.
In addition to the well-known attractions and fairground stalls, including a Ferris wheel, duck stall and haunted house, there are also some new attractions at the Sinksenfoor this year. Especially for the daredevils among us. For example, ‘V Maxx’ is an impressive fast attraction. Two gondolas spin at 120 kilometers per hour, while the legs of the daring swing in the air. With its 60 meters this is the highest device of the entire fair and so you have a beautiful view over Antwerp. You can also enjoy this in the whirligig ‘Sky Glider’, at a height of 40 meters. In the X-treme attraction you go upside down and Techno Power is a family attraction with four large arms that revolve around a central axis. Your head stays above, your feet dangle in the void. There is also a flying carpet with ‘Free Style’ and a special variant of the traditional Pirate Boat.
No Sinksenfoor without godfather. For this year’s edition, that is none other than actor and presenter Axel Daeseleire. “The ‘foor’ for me is pure nostalgia. Stop at Desirée de Lille the haunted house, the amusement park … but especially the boxing stall. I miss that these days. As a young boy I thought it was surreal for someone to be beaten for money, but also heroic at the same time. My parents didn’t allow me to enter such a stall, but I always waited outside to find out who had won. What a wonderful time. And no, I didn’t want to be an astronaut, doctor or firefighter. Secretly I cherished the dream of one day being ‘forain’, but I didn’t dare tell that at home.”
The Sinksenfoor at Park Spoor Oost in Antwerp is still open until Sunday 10 July.
“Not only do the attractions make you dizzy, but also the gin and tonics”, jokes Tanja Dexters with next to him Joyce De Troch†

Belinda Precoils, Samira in ‘Family’, was out with her TV children Amine Boujouh (Ilja) Senne Meynendonckx (Brahim) and Jools Jatta Janssens (Jamila). “It’s nice to get to know each other a little better off the set”, it sounds.
Martine Jonckheere enjoys herself with her husband Filip in the bumper cars. “Young fool”, the actress jokes.
“No Sinksenfoor without smoutebollen”, says singer and sweet tooth Noa Neal† “I even dare to drive here especially for a package.”
“For us, the forum is not only fun, but also the perfect time to see cousins, uncles and aunts who are here again,” says Kelly Pfaff alongside her children Kenji and Shania at her niece Kelly’s amusement park.
“We always start calmly, but then we go a step more intense,” says ‘Thirties’ actor Kristof Goffin with ‘Karrewiet’ face next to him Jelle Mels†

“The Hall of Mirrors is an attraction not to be missed at the fair”, says actor Dirk Van Vooren who went to Antwerp with his wife Griet and their children Tuur and Anna. “Everyone knows it.”
“When the weather is warm, such a ride in the tree trunks is extra refreshing,” according to ‘De Buurtpolitie’ actors Lisa Gerlo and Dempsey Hendrickx.
