Video released which takes you inside of Banksy's Dismaland

Banksy made some pretty big headlines around the world the other week when he announced the opening of a subversive theme park dubbed Dismaland which would stand opposed to renowned playlands like Disneyland and offer up something a little bit different, something more in line with Banksy's counter-culture.

Opening just a few days ago, Dismaland ha begun to take shape and Channel 4 News have released an in-depth, experiential video taking you through this "different kind of family day out". Posted on Facebook, the video shows us the strong, odd performance art aspect here from the hilariously off-kilter security guards to the bemused ticket attendants.

Check out the video below, and if you're lucky enough to be in the area, Dismaland is located in UK seaside town Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset, England.

Banksy's Dismaland theme park opens today. Krishnan Guru Murthy went to have an early nose around the bizarre and dystopian "bemusement park".
