Banksy’s Dismaland is Closed (But Now You Can Take a 360º Tour in 4k)

Dismaland, the temporary art project organised by street artist Banksy, and constructed in the seaside resort town of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England, closed its gates for good yesterday – for our great dismal, as we didn’t have a chance to pay a visit. Nevertheless, “the sinister twist on Disneyland”, which Banksy has described it as a “family theme park unsuitable for children” has attracted over 150,000 visitors from all over the world, generating £20m in extra revenue for the people and businesses of the town. That’s a big feat considering that only 500 daily walk-in tickets were given out…

But don’t be sad if, similarly to us, you weren’t among the lucky ones, because YouTube user 360 Thrill was able to go around the park with a 360 virtual reality camera, which means you can tour the park and gawk at the attractions that you missed. Check out how “the dull music, sad staff members and creepy messages over the intercom made the park outstanding.”
