threat and horror
There are a few mild scary scenes, including one in which people encounter some frightening projected images, like those seen in a ghost train, as they go through a tunnel. A child falls into a chute and her father follows behind her but they are later shown to be unharmed. Other greedy children are punished by falling into a river of chocolate or by being blown up to massive size, but the scenes are comic and fantastical.
