Ever wonder what it would be like if Disneyland were to head into a post apocalyptic state, leaving behind nothing but an eerie, ghost like park? Na, me neither. But clearly, famed artist Banksy has had the thought churning away for some time now, as the faceless legend is unbolting the double doors on his unique exhibition tomorrow.
Open to the public until the 27th of September, Dismaland (as it has been named), will put a darkened, silent twist on the current glitzy theme park, and with that, it’s going to contain everything from a fire torn princess castle, to an empty Ferris wheel. And what better place to settle it, than at an old lido in the seaside town of Weston-Super-Mare? The gothic pop-up exhibition is definitely going to get some heads turning and as Bansky is already known for, he will be lifting the harsh truth on the troubles at hand.
Want a ticket? Well, as you can imagine, they are going to be on high demand so you’ll have to be snappy. You can do this of two ways, either on the door (unlikely to grab one as there is a limited amount) or via the website which is HERE! And they shall be on sale soon. Friday (21st August) is only scheduled for locals and local press, so don’t go sneaking in! Viewings are being scheduled everyday from 11AM-6PM with a day ticket, and in the evenings it’s 7PM-11PM.Who knows, hopefully we can grab some to see you there!
