    Britain's newest theme park, "Dismaland," opens on Friday and is tagged as "UK's most disappointing new visitor attraction!" courtesy of British street artist Banksy.

    The park is equipped with a decrepit castle, a merry-go-round horse set to be cooked and model boats on a pool full of refugees.

    The secretive Banksy, famed for his ironic murals in unexpected places, said the show was something different, as his street art had become "just as reassuringly white, middle class and lacking in women as any other art movement."
