Technopolis Presents ‘The Magic Of Movies’: Real-Life Special Effects

Watch how Technopolis reveals the secrets behind movie magic, in fiery and mystifying special effect showcases. You get to see the science behind the movies in a spectacular way. And when we say ‘spectacular’, we mean don’t-try-this-at-home spectacular!

The Technopolis crew will give demonstrations in fixed sessions, each with their own theme. Fire, smoke, you name it!
You can also get a picture or a selfie with one of these movie special effects in the Science Photobooth.


Big flames, REALLY big flames, flash flames, car explosion flames, different coloured flames, and … a magical book that’s on fire but doesn’t burn down? Now that is magical. 

Watch the show and take pictures with the props!


How do you make clouds or mist exactly? Technopolis will not be pushing the button of a smoke machine, of course, but will rather dive into its chemistry lab to create some amazing effects. 

Watch the show and take pictures with the props!

These are just a few examples of the many awesome experiments and shows that Technopolis will present to you. Join us for an unforgettable and informative experience in the FACTS Fan Village!

Since 1993, the FACTS organisers have been working their hardest to do right by the thousands of fans that come together in Ghent. We always aim to create a safe space for all our fans to gather, be themselves and make unforgettable memories with like-minded people and guests from all over the world.

With the well-being, health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors, crew and partners as our main priority, FACTS has been closely following and monitoring the evolution of the outbreak and spread of COVID-19, the Corona pandemic, during the last days.

Since the situation in Belgium is becoming more critical every day and since the US government announced travel restrictions to Europe, FACTS has decided to cancel the FACTS Spring 2020 edition due to force majeure.

After considering all possible safety measures, we have ultimately decided to follow the guidance of the local health organisations and governments indicating that mass events should be cancelled.

As our main goal is to offer our amazing community the unique experience they deserve and to guarantee their safety, we simply were left with no other option.

It pains us to take this decision, but we are already looking forward to the next gathering with all our fans, exhibitors and guests on 24 & 25 October in Flanders Expo Ghent. In the meantime, we have worked very hard to guarantee an even more impressive line-up of stars and we are excited to announce that Ian Somerhalder, Rebecca Mader & Troy Baker have already confirmed that they will be present to meet all their fans in Belgium on 24 & 25 October. More guests and surprises will be announced in the coming months.

All our visitors, exhibitors and partners will be contacted personally by e-mail very soon, with more information regarding the next steps. All entry tickets will remain valid for FACTS in October, but visitors will get the choice: keep the ticket(s) for October or ask for a refund. More detailed info on that will follow soon.

We appreciate the support we have received in the past week. The feedback was invaluable in helping us determine this decision.

Kind regards,

The FACTS team
