Just how shit was Dismaland?

Banksy's thrilling new addition to the UK's variegated collection of broken-down seaside amenities, a so-called "bemusement park", was announced late in August. Set up on the site of a disused amusement park in Weston-super-Mare called Tropicana, the idea was to basically create a massive art installation that shows off one of Britain's proudest assets: totally crap seaside holidays.

Said Banksy himself in a statement at the time of announcement:

"I hope everyone from Weston will take the opportunity to once more stand in a puddle of murky water eating cold chips to the sound of crying children."

That just about sums up the average British holiday-by-the-sea. But how was the experience visually? Did Banksy capture that essence of true crapness? We sent Micaela Mclucas to find out.
