For the Kids

Fun, fun, Fun

This year we will again have a Kermis (Carnival) and an entry ticket ($10)  for children, entitles them to unlimited rides all day. For a small extra charge there will be: Face Painting, Pony Rides, Petting Zoo, Sand Painting, Henna Painting & Virtual Reality Rides including a trip to the Netherlands. There will also be a free photo booth, alpacas and Kees Honden and a best-dressed dog competition. Dogs on a lead and responsibly cared for, are welcome. 

Teenagers will also be asked to pay $10 entry and for that they will be able to compete in the Sjoelbak competition (multiple times) for great prizes, play mini-golf and we are working on more. 


GoatVR & Phototainment

Virtual Reality & Photo Booth

GOAT VR provides a wonderful multi-sensory experience and entertainment through the use of 9D virtual reality. Take a trip to the Netherlands or ride the roller coaster or choose from many other exciting experiences.
Phototainment provides a large 42-inch interactive touch screen display that itself provides an enhanced experience. The live mode on the large screen means you can exactly see yourself with ease even from a distance and make any adjustments to your pose before the photo is clicked. The large screen is then complimented by a high-resolution DSLR camera that guarantees image quality. Everyone will get a free printed photo as well as their photo being emailed to them.
