Design Museum presents the best of all the world’s dodgy amusement parks, “Dismaland“!
Don’t bring the kids, though. With Cinderella’s corpse (coach crash) and an elderly woman being devoured by birds, it’s not exactly family friendly.
The “bemusement park” is described by its mysterious street-artist creator, Banksy, as “a festival of art, amusements, and entry-level anarchism.”
Dismaland is located in the English town of Weston-super-mare in a disused swimming facility.
According to the park’s droll website, legal representatives of the Walt Disney Corporation are strictly prohibited from entering.
British artist Banksy has been doing street art all over the world for more than 20 years, but his identity remains a mystery.
Visitors should expect a thorough pat down to gain access to the park.
The park is located on beachfront property in a deserted lido pool.
Many of the art pieces are sharp critiques on modern amusement. This one appears to take a shot at Sea World, which was ripped apart by the 2013 documentary “Blackfish.”
This installation, called “Big Rig Jig,” depicts two oil trucks entwined in a frantic dance.
Banksy’s street art is scattered throughout the park.
A garish carousel is running, but something isn’t quite right about it.
