The five Golden Tickets are the rare tickets needed to gain access to Wonka's Factory in the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and the two film adaptations.  These five Golden Tickets were hidden in five random Wonka Bars sent all over the world.  The winners were Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, Mike Teavee, and Charlie Bucket.

Golden Ticket


  • The tickets were used to enter Wonka's Factory.
  • Every child was sent home with large trucks of Wonka Candy.  If any one of the children were to run out of candy, they would have to show their ticket to the factory and more trucks would come with more candy.
  • In the 1971 and 2005 films, before Charlie founds the last golden ticket, it was believed that the last golden ticket was found by Alberto Millionaire in Paraguay (1971) and a kid in Russia (2005), but it was revealed that their tickets were fake ones.
