There are many people that are new to PAIN and its various expansion packs. The "Abusement Park" add-on is corrupted for anyone that downloads it right now.
Many are blaming the recent 2.53 patch, which adds a free character and YouTube support to the game.
"If you did not have the Abusement park addon downloaded from PSN prior to the update the level is destroyed and unusable, Items fall through the landscape the background image is blank white and the level is unusable."
A quick look at this thread shows a lynch mob asking for Idol Minds' head.
Direct-feed video of the glitch shows how the game is rendered unplayable... because nothing gets rendered! Unfortunately, this glitch doesn't appear to be affecting a small group of people.
Once again, this being the holiday season, it seems unlikely that affected individuals will get a patch in the immediate future.
