Wonka’s Sweet Escape is now in Toronto

Attention all candy-cravers, fun fanatics and Timothée Chalamet lovers: The latest Wonka activation at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre this holiday season is the collaboration you have been waiting for.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to visit Willy Wonka’s factory? Well, now you can finally explore the world of the famous fictional chocolatier at this new immersive Wonka experience in Toronto, and you do not need a golden ticket for this sweet adventure.

This week, Warner Bros. Pictures Canada introduced Wonka’s Sweet Escape, a world-exclusive and immersive activation at Yorkdale, marking the celebration of the holiday season’s most eagerly awaited film release, Wonka, which lands in theatres on December 15.

Wonka stars Timothée Chalamet as a young Willy Wonka in a prequel to Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, and this new experience offers to transport you to the candy-coloured world inspired by Roald Dahl’s classic hit.

So, what can you expect to see at this breathtaking display? A world of pure imagination, of course. The space is filled with whimsical photo ops (including floating balloons) and more surprises.

Visitors can tap into the candymaker’s imagination and experience the magic firsthand through visual content displays and even replica props.

The ultimate highlight is a 30-foot chocolate candy cherry blossom tree, which turns the sugar-coated world of the film into a reality. Plus, there is a larger-than-life Wonka chocolate bar and a prop replica of the chocolate-maker’s iconic walking cane.

Located in Yorkdale’s East Court, between Birks and Canada Goose, the experience is open from now until January 2.

According to organizers, there will also be exclusive prizes and giveaways, like Wonka chocolate, promo items plus a Yorkdale mall shopping spree.

There is so much more there, but you have to go experience it for yourself.

So, if you are in the mall shopping for holiday gifts, be sure to stop by and check out this whimsical installation.
