Dismaland Is the Creepiest, Most Amazing Park We've Ever Seen

, ,

    Stop what you're doing, and ask yourself a question: Do you live in the UK? No? Then get on a plane right now and head towards Weston-super-Mare, nearby Somerset, England. Already in the UK? Good. Either way, you've got until September 27 to check out the latest creation by artist Banksy, a theme park titled "Dismaland."

    Now you've probably heard about this place already, but just in case you haven't, here's the gist. Banksy put together a mammoth art installation on 2.5 acres of land. The concept is an obvious take on the overtly happy Disneyland, but with a "dismal" twist. Apparently, even the staff are grumpy and surly, adding to the ambiance of the whole thing.

    Now you probably don't want to take your kids here, but it does look like a ton of fun for the grown-ups in the crowd. Plus, there are lots of events to attend in the next few weeks, so there's that.

    Overall, this looks like a fun place to visit, even if the theme implies the opposite. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a flight to book.
