Sugar lovers - a real-life Willy Wonka Factory has opened in Sydney.

Our brand new experience takes place in a huge heritage warehouse at The Rocks, with two floors of immersive spaces celebrating iconic lollies, ice creams and sweet treats.

Feeling like a kid in a candy store is the aim of the game - regardless of age!

  • Swim in a Pool of Marshmallows

  • Guess the lollies at the Scratch ‘n’ Sniff Wall

  • Climb inside a Prize Claw Machine

  • Enter Bubble O’ Bill and Jill’’s Wild West Saloon

Sweetening the deal are free lollies and ice cream for every visitor!

You'll also enjoy creating endless photos and video content at our colourful, sweet backdrops.

We accept Dine & Discover NSW Vouchers online and in person.

This is the ‘must see’ summer exhibition for anyone who ever hit a sugar high, slammed a Tim Tam or jumped for joy at the sound of a Mr. Whippy van- so don’t miss out! Round up your gang and book NOW as we're here for a limited time.
