[[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.

[[WMG: The Scary Boat Tunnel is actually traveling through [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 the Warp]].
* You've got a boat which travels what appears to be a vast distance without actually moving (judging from the utter stillness when the visions fade) and horribly nightmarish images. What else could it be?

* The fake Slugworth might have helped Charlie just a bit more than the others, leaving the money for him to find, bribing the candy dealer to give Charlie that particular bar of chocolate. He would be watching to make sure it worked out, how else would he meet Charlie so quickly.
