After days of teasers that made us feel like it was 2011 again, Katy Perry has unveiled Oblivia in the music video for “Chained to the Rhythm,” her politically charged new single featuring Skip Marley. The fictional amusement park is exactly what you would expect, featuring rides like “The Great American Dream Drop” and a hypnotic rotating hamster wheel. In all honesty, it looks more fun than Six Flags.

Much like the song itself, the video avoids taking a major political stance and opts to make subtle statements while commenting on the collective obliviousness of certain parts of America. Catch her sly appreciation of immigrants with a ride entitled “No Place Like Home” and her call-to-attention to the Flint water crisis with Oblivia’s featured treat, Inferno H²0. We see you, Katy.
