WELCOME TO DISNE…DISMALAND

We all know Disneyland is known as the Happiest Place on Earth. Ever wondered what the antithesis would be?

Enter Banksy, one of the world’s most notorious graffiti street artists and an icon for dark humor.

You likely haven’t seen his face, but at some point you may have come across his art.

Look familiar?

The UK art prodigy put his own twist on Walt Disney’s magical kingdom creating the dark, possibly even a little depressing, yet, entertaining Dismaland.

Expect some dark humor, depression, and ‘beautiful’ugliness. And as you could imagine the staff aren’t quite as enthusiastic as you’d find in Walt’s creation.

The location seems dull with enough silence to hear your own heartbeat. But with that silence, you’re able to use more of your eyes and appreciate the disturbing artwork that Banksy has set up for you.

Unfortunately, this attraction doesn’t last long. Dismaland Bemusement Park will only be active starting from August 22nd to September 27th of this year. Tickets will be available at the door only for their opening weekend and will go on sale on the site soon. Admission is only 3 euros and capacity is limited to 2000 guests at a time. Time to clear out your schedule and make your way to what they say is the UK’s “most disappointing new visitor attraction.”
