Bringing Willy Wonka to Life

Have you ever found yourself wondering about the Chocolate Factory from, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Like, what if Willy Wonka was a real person and the chocolate factory was a real place. Well, we were curious so we ran the numbers to see how much it would cost to bring this dream to a reality!

As you probably guessed, it’s quite an expensive feat to bring the Chocolate Factory to real life. Willy spares no expense when it comes to the other aspects of his magical building. Running the numbers, the river made of chocolate would need 150,000 gallons of chocolate, costing Wonka a whopping $32.6 million. That number quickly becomes a nonfactor when you find out how much a chocolate river or flying elevator would set you back! We’re talking over $109 Million for the elevator alone. Now this technology doesn’t exactly exist, so we took some liberties and equated it to the cost of an elevator plus a state-of-the-art rocket. Give us a break, it’s a fairy tale land!

For the rest of the estimates, check out the infographic below!
