Sorry guys, No Happily Ever After at Dismaland

One week ago, Banksy, the artist well known for his street art pieces opened Dismaland, a "bemusement park" situated on the seafront in legendary Weston-super-Mare.

 

The theme park, which also features 50 other artists from all over the world, defines itself as "The UK's most disappointing new visitor attraction". This, of course, aroused my curiosity. Since I don’t have the possibility to visit it in person, I was able to snoop around the installation via the best pictures taken by Instagramees.

 

Here's my selection:

On the official website there is a map http://www.dismaland.co.uk/map/ which guides visitors across the area and among the pieces of art.

 

Banksy has also released an official trailer which highlights some of the pieces on show.
