The urban artist’s latest project, located in the derelict Tropicana Lido in Weston-super-Mare in North Somerset, England, shocked the world by inviting people to visit one very dark and twisted amusement park. Upon entry, visitors were able to explore any number of dark attractions such as a fire-ravaged fairytale Cinderella Castle with a deceased Cinderella and an anarchist training camp. Interactive activities included a pond where visitors could steer model boats packed with migrants.

The ghoulish park featured works not only by now-iconic Banksy himself, but also many international and British artists including Damien Hirst. During its time open, more than 150,000 people visited Dismaland, increasing tourism to the area by 20 percent.

The Dismaland deconstruction process is expected to take three weeks.
