"Dismaland" offers an apology

An apology today from the newly-opened "Dismaland," the creation of the social activist Banksy in England:

We would like to apologise to anyone attempting to buy tickets online today.
Due to unprecedented demand “the UK’s most disappointing new visitor attraction”
is currently unable to process online ticket sales.

This Saturday and Sunday August 22nd and 23rd tickets will only be available on the door
(of the portacabin on the grass opposite the site) from 9am. After reaching its 2000 capacity entry
will be on a one in/one out basis.  Last entry at 9pm. This may result in some queueing and we
apologise for any inconvenience. Online bookings will be taken from Tuesday 25th August.

Dismal Land – a festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism.
Are you looking for an alternative to the sugar-coated tedium of the average family day out? Or just somewhere a lot cheaper?
Then this is the place for you. Bring the whole family to come and enjoy the latest addition to our chronic leisure surplus…
Open everyday from 22nd August – 27th September 2015.
11am – 11pm. Admission £3, free for the under 5’s.
Capacity is limited, visit the ticket page and book a time slot for guaranteed entry.
