A Willy Wonka Pop Up Is Coming To The Sunshine Coast (With Dancing Oompa Loompas)

By Emma Pickles - 01 Apr 2017

Yes. You read that correctly. All of your childhood dreams are about to come true IRL because sugar-filled heaven is officially coming to the Sunshine Coast and you’ll be floating on bubblegum-coloured candy floss clouds!

Right in the middle of Maroochydore’s CBD, a honeycomb haven will be popping up next weekend and staying for one week only! We reckon you’re probably going to need to make it a cheat week.

I’ve got a perfect puzzle for you.

They wanted to stay as true to the movie as possible, so there will be all of the sweet delights from the film including cream-filled massive mushrooms, rainbow-swirl lollipops, candy cane twigs, gummy bearing trees, and many a mysterious, mystical candy ball.

But wait! There’s more… Flavoured bubble machines, lickable wallpaper, and a make-your-own lolly station, where you can choose you own flavours, colours, shapes, and textures! So get ready to go wild. How does a chewy strawberry, salted-caramel creation sound? Or maybe a rainbow raspberry, orange, lemon, mint, and blueberry ripple ball? You can go as OTT as you want.

If you are wise you will listen to me.

And—wait for it—the best part there is going to be a frickin’ CHOCOLATE WATERFALL. So grab your edible teacups and get cracking. All we can say is scrumdiddilyumptious.

There’s limited entry because there’s no such thing as everlasting gobstopppers (don’t be silly) so make sure to secure your golden ticket here. https://www.theurbanlist.com/auckland

If you got this far, then ha ha ha ha.

And look out for the golden egg ‘cause you could be in to win a sweet, sweet prize (hint hint) that’ll take you from rags to riches like little Charlie Bucket.

If you’ve made it this far… Happy April Fool’s! Although we wish this concept was coming to little ol’ Sunshine Coast, it’s not. Maybe next year, folks. We’ll be sure to keep you updated if this ever happens.

I feel sorry for you!
