Candytopia Is the Closest You'll Get to Visiting Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory

One of our greatest dreams has always been to visit Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. It looks like that fantasy is about to become a reality… sort of.

Willy Wonka's chocolate factory isn't coming to Los Angeles, but the next best thing is.

Allow us to introduce you to Candytopia.

This one-of-a-kind immersive exhibit—created by Hollywood Candy Queen Jackie Sorkin—brings a sugarcoated dream-world to life.

Visiting this confectionary wonderland is sure to be a real treat (pun definitely intended). As you roam through the space, you'll experience larger-than-life interactive installations along with seven uniquely themed rooms—one of which features a marshmallow tsunami.

Floating in a sea of giant mallows truly sounds like a dream.

The museum promises sweet surprises around every corner, which we hope is code for all the free candy. We can already feel the sugar rush coming on.

The museum kicks off its three-month run in Los Angeles Friday, Dec. 15. If you can't make it out to L.A., Candytopia will be announcing the other cities it's set to stop at very soon.

Make sure to get your tickets HERE, because opening weekend is already sold out. Trust us, you don't want to miss this incredible exhibit.
