So Banksy has opened up a kind of anti-theme park called Dismaland in a seaside town in the UK. It's basically an art installation with living works inside, including unenthusiastic staff and exhibits of dystopian and politically subversive art with a message.

Here's an article explaining it better than me: http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2015/08/dismaland/

So what do you think of this? I for one really want to go. It seems interesting and I like the irony of it.

Even though it's a bit weird, I sort of want to have a look! Seems like it could be quite interesting.

That's a brilliant contrast to Disney world indeed. I would be right at home there in fact. I guess all the staff there would also be the opposite of the pedo staff that work at Disney to bolster the irony.. oh no offense @Seth. :bubsy:

The queue length to get in today was absolutely ridiculous so I gave it a miss. I'll see what it is like Wednesday as there will be less people than on the weekend.

Oh, so that's why I have to pay to get in?

What a joke.
