    “It Looks Like A Meth Lab”: How Willy Wonka Experience In Glasgow Turned Into A Nightmare For Kids Involving Cops

    Glasgow’s Willy Wonka experience was introduced as a big treat for fans of the novel and film, allowing visitors to indulge in an immersive experience. Things, however, took an ugly turn as the guests realized that the event was nothing as described.

    Reports from people who attended the event spoke about their terrible experience, as workers of the event too, revealed ghastly instances of the work environment.

    Glasgow, Europe unveiled an exciting themed event for fans of Roald Dahl’s ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory‘, promising “a day filled with laughter, joy, and the irresistible allure of chocolate” that will “create lasting memories and redefine what it means to step into a world of pure imagination.”

    It was supposed to have “whimsical performances” and “surprises at every turn” as part of “a celebration of chocolate in all its delightful forms.”

    Tickets for the event cost £35 (about $45), and many excited fans turned up for the event. Alas! the difference between the event’s reality to what was promised to guests was a major difference and attendees were in for a nightmare of an experience, leading to children leaving the event in tears, and cops being involved as well.

    Real images of the event were vastly different than what the site promised. Decorations were scattered and looked extremely unflattering. The whole event was just one warehouse hastily decorated to look like a chocolaty experience and resembled nothing like how it was advertised.

    An actor who was part of the event said, “I just felt sad because I was aware of how many kids were going to be coming through.” 

    The organizer of the event, House Of Illuminati issued a statement as well, apologizing for the failure and promising a refund to everyone.

    The statement reads that they were “let down in many areas of our event” at the last minute “and tried our best to continue on and push through.”

    “We planned a fabulous event and it just did not take shape as planned,” the House of Illuminati said, “and for that we are truly sorry we are devastated at how this has turned out.”
