Wow...Willy Wonka is gone. Well, Gene Wilder is gone, but to me, he's Willy Wonka. One's acting skills have to be pretty legit to make people think you're someone your'e not. I still would love to one day visit the chocolate factory! I'm hoping someone has the desire and the funds to create it; I would so go there. I'd go there and I'd ride the Wonkatania while singing, 
"There is no earthly way of knowing, which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing, or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Bleh! Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing! Are the fires of hell a-blowing? Is the grizzly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing, for the rowers keep on rowing and they certainly aren't showing any signs that they are slowing...Quite right, sir. STOP THE BOAT!"
