The above post perfectly describes how disappointing the event turned out. As reported by The Guardian, frustrated parents had to call the police after they witnessed the “awful” event, leading children to tears. The promotional images were AI-generated, with high quality, and depicted the imaginative and fantastical world of Willy Wonka. But the reality turned out to be polar opposite. It felt like an empty warehouse with poor organization or props that actually didn’t feel like a prop but disaster.

Not only were the parents and kids disappointed by the Willy Wonka Experience, but also one of the actors, Paul Connell, who was employed to play Willy Wonka. The actor in a video (via X) stated that people “wanted Timothée Chalamet and got Timothe Chalaton” instead.

He also mentioned that the “script was 15 pages monologue, pretty much of AI-generated gibberish” and Connell believes he embarrassed himself enough by being a part of this event. He then mocks The Unknown, expressing that there’s barely a point in making an evil chocolate maker. The actor also revealed that children were only given a single jelly bean and a cup of lemonade.
