We reported yesterday that rumors were flying that street artist Bansky was opening a pop-up theme park of sorts in the British town of Weston-super-Mare, and that the Guardian and others who visited the site had spied giant wire horse sculptures and a decrepit-looking castle structure on the grounds of the alleged site.



Today, there's a new website online that actually lays out the map of the "Dismaland Bemusement Park," billed as "the U.K.'s most disappointing new visitor attraction." 

The site lists the park's highlights, which include three contemporary art galleries, a "mini gulf" course, a gothic sculpture park, a sculpture of an orca jumping through a hoop into a kiddie pool of water and more.
