You will have lived by each second of the now-infamous “Willy Wonka Chocolate Expertise” from behind your cellphone display, however what if you got the possibility to stay out the meme in actual life?

Sure, the now-infamous Glasgow occasion that turned a viral hit and made worldwide headlines is coming again — this time, to California.

In response to a web page on Eventbrite, which firstly states “YES THIS IS A REAL EVENT,” “Willy’s Chocolate Expertise LA” will mark the return of the “highly-acclaimed” journey and its debut within the U.S. following its “groundbreaking success” on the Glasgow occasion.

However these descriptions in all probability aren’t how attendees would describe it — if they are not simply laughing about it now.

Guests attending the Glasgow occasion in February have been promised an “immersive” Wonka-themed expertise full with big props, dancing Oompa-Loompas and sweet galore. As an alternative, they have been met with a big warehouse stuffed with lackluster decorations, a half-inflated bouncy fortress and two jellybeans every, one attendee informed The New York Instances.

Attendees quickly requested refunds and even referred to as the police, and halfway by, the occasion organizer, the Home of Illuminati, abruptly canceled the expertise. However that did not finish its life for good, because the web quickly took it up as its new sensation. 

Not lengthy after, social media was stuffed with photographs, movies and memes from the expertise, together with one fan-favorite of a “unhappy” Oompa Loompa worker. That worker, Kirsty Paterson, is claimed to be making a comeback on the Los Angeles occasion.

“Following its groundbreaking success in Glasgow, this fantastical occasion guarantees an immersive journey into the whimsical world of ‘Willy’ Wonka, that includes the infamous Scottish Oompa Loompa, Kirsty Paterson, in an unique absurdist Q&A and fan picture alternative,” the occasion web page states.

And some different traits from the Scotland occasion are being replicated within the states too, like its location of a “nondescript warehouse” in downtown Los Angeles. Attendees may even be given two complimentary jelly beans, little question a nod to the sweet treats given on the first expertise. 

Different “enchanting sights” included within the $44 normal admission payment can be an “immersive” silent movie screening complemented by stay music, native distributors promoting candy treats and maybe even “Wonka” star Timothée Chalamet, who the occasion web page states has “expressed curiosity in attending.”

So if you happen to’re up for a possible Fyre Fest-esque evening on April 28, tickets could be bought right here. They’re non-refundable “as a result of we’re truly going to ship,” the web page states, however all proceeds can be donated to a psychological well being charity.
