There’s a Willy Wonka-Inspired Chocolate Factory Coming to Universal Studios

"If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it"

Universal Studios Orlando is opening a new restaurant that is sure to delight anyone with a sweet tooth.

Although it’s not officially affiliated with either Willy Wonka movie, Toothsome Chocolate Factory will immerse visitors in a setting very similar to the candy maker’s quirky dessert laboratory. The new attraction promises to “transport you into a 19th century-inspired Steampunk chocolate factory” featuring “towering smoke stacks, funky gadgetry, and staff wearing unique Steampunk fashion,” according to the theme park’s official blog.

While Toothsome won’t exclusively serve desserts, the eatery’s sweet treats look to be one of its main draws. The park has unveiled details about a few of its creative confections, including several delicious-sounding milkshakes and sundaes: “The sundaes are anything but ordinary with flavors like Salted Caramel Flan, Chocolate Brownie Bark and S’mores,” Universal writes. “This extreme twist on a summer favorite features layers of chocolate ice-cream, chocolate sauce, marshmallow cream and graham crackers.”

And since the restaurant will be part of Universal CityWalk, the shopping district located outside the park’s gates, guests won’t even have to pay an admission fee for a chance to eat there.

Toothsome is set to open later this year.
