Dismaland is a five-week show housed inside and around a derelict Tropicana building in Weston-super-Mare, a seaside town in Somerset, England.

Banksy describes his wonderland as a "family theme park unsuitable for children," according to the BBC.

Which means that you can appease your children by taking them to an amusement park while simultaneously torturing them.

The park features enough apocryphal Disney World imaginings to ruin a 5-year-old forever.

And works go beyond just Banksy. Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, and other artists have pieces on exhibit.

And while it's all so creepy, it does make you THINK...

Dismaland is Banksy's biggest art show to date, and we're sure the crowds will gather.

The art is up for you to interpret. And the statement pieces will chill you to the bone.
