Have you ever found yourself wondering about the Chocolate Factory from, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? What if you could go there and explore the wonders and bizarreness that lie behind its doors. Well, we were also curious so we did the math and found out how much it would cost to make this dream a reality!
Willy spares no expense when it comes to his magical building. Running the numbers, the river made of chocolate would need 150,000 gallons of chocolate, costing Wonka a whopping $32.6 million. That number quickly becomes a nonfactor when you find out how much a chocolate river or flying elevator would set you back! We’re talking over $109 Million for the elevator alone. Now this technology doesn’t exactly exist, so we took some liberties and equated it to the cost of an elevator plus a state-of-the-art rocket.
In total, it appears that Mr. Wonka will have to spend a total of $224.6 million per year to keep the factory running. These expenses may be excessive, and there are undoubtedly some methods to cut costs—but what fun would that be?
