[[WMG: Willy Wonka deliberately set up various aspects of the tour to ensure that the kids would be forced to take part in the Gobstopper test.]]
As someone who is somewhat of a ManChild himself, Wonka's main concern wasn't the kids' misbehavior, as that would be a result of their fascination of what they saw during the tour. Rather, his concerns involved whether he can trust them with the factory, as his business was almost destroyed by spies from rival candy companies. As such, after learning about each kid's FatalFlaw (either from the news reports about each winner or from Mr. Wilkinson personally), Wonka made sure that the tour would include one aspect that would take advantage of each kid's flaw, thus ensuring that they lose their lifetime supply of chocolate and and subsequently take part in Wonka's SecretTestOfCharacter involving the only piece of candy that they would end receiving due to their actions, the Everlasting Gobstopper. While the basic elements were the same for each kid, there were two kids where things had to be done differently:

'''1. Augustus Gloop.''' Wonka probably figured that given how much [[BigEater he likes food]], Augustus would be the one kid who would definitely [[TakeAThirdOption keep the Everlasting Gobstopper for himself]] than either try to sell it to Slugworth or give it back to him. As such, Wonka made sure that the part of tour which takes advantage of Augustus's gluttony happened before he gave the rest of the kids the Gobstoppers.

'''2. Charlie Bucket.''' As Charlie only found the final Golden Ticket the day before the big tour, Wonka didn't really have time to plan something proper that could cause him to lose his lifetime supply of chocolate. As such, the Fizzy Lifting Drinks were included in the tour in hopes that Charlie (or whoever found the fifth ticket, if it wasn't him) would take the SchmuckBait and actually take a sip of the drink (which is what he and Grandpa Joe eventually did).

* Alternatively, Charlie could be the result of a one-night stand between his mother and Willy Wonka. And Wonka - in a rare moment of guilt - decided to organize a gigantic media extravaganza as a means of choosing an heir to his empire, rigging it so that Charlie would win. This would go along nicely with the WMG that the contest was somehow rigged in Charlie's favor from the beginning.

[[WMG: Willy Wonka is a Timelord/the Final Regeneration of The Doctor]]
Let's examine, shall we?
*First, His personality:-
**He is an eccentric, super-genius
**He has a very child-like sense of wonder, excitement and curiosity
**This however seems to cover a darkness within him and a profound loneliness
**Loves exploration, danger and adventure
**Charges headlong into most situations
**Able to remain calm and level headed, even in the most dire of predicaments
**Does not suffer fools easily
**Wonka Lies
**Seeks out companions
*Next his factory and Elevator
**The Elevator sas the ability to fly
**Can travel through space
**The factory's layout makes no sense and defies the laws of physics
**The sheer size of the factory is too big for its outward appearance... it is bigger on the inside.
Willy Wonka is either the Doctor's final form or, just as likely, a Time Lord who avoided the Time War and now lives his life on Earth. He has selected Charlie to run the factory while he regenerates and goes on a new adventure.

[[WMG: Augustus could have taken it all himself.]]
There's a blink and you miss it moment where during the contract signing the children are crowding to get to the contract. Augustus is the only child to act politely and actually hands the pen to Charlie. In this movie, little signs like that show strong moral fiber. It was bad luck and temptation that took out Augustus. If he had been able to avoid the river none of the other traps would have gotten his attention while every other child could have fallen to the other traps.

There are even plausible explanations for why Wonka picked each kid for their strengths and tested their weaknesses:
* Augustus Gloop, obviously, loves eating. He'd be obsessed with creating the most delicious candy. But he's a glutton, and the chocolate river proved that he'd be overwhelmed by all the candy and never keep a clear head.
* Violet Beauregard is competitive and cutthroat, an important quality for the owner of any business. She'd work hard to keep Wonka #1. But she's too competitive, and would care more success than preserving the integrity of the brand, hence the Gobstopper Incident.
* Veruca Salt is wealthy and knows how to handle money. She'd be sure to keep the company in the black and probably expand it. But she's too greedy, and doesn't care about the candy itself or the welfare of any other person or part of the business.
* Mike Teavee is very clever, and would be a creative and effective leader. But he cares more about solving puzzles than anything else, and doesn't even really like candy.
* Charlie respects and admires Wonka's company, and would preserve the Wonka spirit. But he gets overwhelmed by the wonder and loses his discretion, not to mention he's too eager to do what others expect of him, which is how he ends up taking the fizzy concoction and floating up to the ceiling, plus being tempted by Slugworth.
The children are, in order, a food expert, an aggressive businessperson, a savvy money manager, a brainiac, and a true candymaker. Wonka just needed to check who could best serve the needs of the factory.

Wonka wanted a way to scare off some of the weaker-stomached children to help weed out his successor, who would need to have a taste for the bizarre, of which the factory obviously has no shortage (note that Charlie and Grandpa Joe seemed to enjoy the ride.) He almost had his way, as they were clearly disturbed, but they all proceeded to simply shrug it it off instead of demanding to leave.

** There is no evidence of Gellar fields being used, and it's doubtful the generators would fit on a boat. And without Gellar fields, your life span in the Warp is horribly shortened.

[[WMG: Slugworth worked for Wonka the whole time.]]
Wonka is aware there are spies in his factory, so he sends one of his trusted employees to sniff them out. He changes his name to Slugworth to hide his identity, and Wonka creates a dummy corporation (Slugworth's Chocolate Inc.) for him to work as its boss. "Slugworth" is able to mingle with Wonka's rivals and report to him any important information. He made a reputation as Wonka's worst competitor to throw away suspicions. He continue to work even when Wonka briefly closed his factory.
