Street artist Banksy may have just revealed one of his best projects yet, appropriatley titled “Dismaland,” it's a Disneyland spin off with a dark twist. The “bemusement” park is located at the abandoned Tropicana swimming resort in Weston-super-Mare, UK, and features dark and twisted artworks from Banksy and 50 other artists from around the world.

Unlike Disneyland the theme park won't be your normal family day out with "uneven floor surfaces, extensive use of strobe lighting, imagery unsuitable for small children and swearing." Dismaland will be open for 5 weeks and admission will be £3. More info on Dismaland can be found here.

Dismaland is a family theme park that is "not suitable for children" inspired by Disneyland.

Created by Banksy, the theme park was built in secret at the English resort town of Weston-super-Mare.

Banksy says that “I guess you’d say it’s a theme park whose big theme is ‘theme parks should have bigger themes”

The site will be full of artworks with a dark twist and will also feature the artwork of 50 other artists from around the world.

The brochure states that the park has "uneven floor surfaces, extensive use of strobe lighting, imagery unsuitable for small children and swearing."

The park will be open for 5 weeks and admission will cost £3. More info here.
