Families left disappointed after Willy Wonka-inspired event in Glasgow turns into a disaster

Attendees of a Willy Wonka-inspired event in Glasgow, Scotland were left outraged after arriving to find a sparsely decorated warehouse and being offered only a quarter glass of lemonade (or lime-flavored soda when supplies ran out) for their £35 ($44) ticket. The event, which promised “optical wonders” and “extraordinary props,” quickly turned into chaos as angry attendees called the police.

Police Scotland confirmed to CNN that the event was canceled and the story went viral on social media. Actor Paul Connell, hired to perform at the event, described the scene as a crowd of angry people outside, with organizers crying and losing control.

Organizers House of Illuminati issued an apology on Facebook, acknowledging the event as a “stressful and frustrating day” and stating that they will not be holding any other events in the near future. The event had been promoted with an extravagant website filled with fantastical images and descriptions of an “Enchanted Garden,” a “Laboratory of Imagination,” and a “Twilight Tunnel.”

However, the reality of the event fell far short of what was advertised. Connell received a 15-page script the day before the event promising special effects, but upon arrival at the warehouse, found it practically empty with only a few plastic mushrooms.

Attendee Jack Proctor and his family paid £95 for the experience, but found it underwhelming and quickly left after security began kicking people out. Proctor described a lackluster experience with only two Oompa Loompas handing out candy, which left most children in tears.

Videos posted on social media captured the disappointment of attendees, with one cloaked and masked figure scaring children and leading to cries. A Facebook group was created for those left disappointed to share their stories, with one parent stating her kids received only two jelly beans and a quarter can of lemonade soda.

The actors hired for the event were reportedly “mortified” by the experience, with Connell mentioning that they tried to make it enjoyable but were pressured to rush through interactions with attendees. Attempts to contact the House of Illuminati for comment were unsuccessful as emails bounced back.

Overall, the Willy Wonka-inspired event in Glasgow turned into a disaster, leaving families upset and unsatisfied with the lackluster experience they received.
