This Extended Footage Gives Us The Most Detailed Look Of That Hilariously Awful Wonka Immersive Experience Yet

We're on day three of the discourse around the disastrous Willy Wonka "immersive chocolate experience" in Glasgow.

To run you up to speed real quick, people paid $40 a ticket to go to a Willy Wonka candy world that turned out to be terrible.

My absolute favorite part of this whole thing is this completely made-up character called "The Unknown," who hides behind mirrors and scares children.

A new video is going viral with the most detailed first-person perspective of what the "experience" was like.

Here's the video:

In the clip, we get another view of the slightly terrifying and completely perplexing "Unknown" villain:

We see a child getting approximately three jellybeans from an Oompa Loompa:

You really get a perspective of just how random all of the decor was:

We also get a view of the chocolate moat, and also see that people waited in a line to walk over it.

We get to see Willy Wonka in action:

And there's also a clip of a woman scooping marshmallows into cups Great Depression-style:

Bleak!

The video ends with a slideshow showing some more of the decor:

We see that people actually waited in lines for what little candy they had.

Ultimately, this is the gift that keeps on giving.

I would like an immersive experience of this immersive experience.
