The Pripyat amusement park is an abandoned amusement park in Pripyat, Ukraine. It was to be opened for the first time on May 1, 1986, in time for the May Day celebrations, but these plans were scuttled on April 26, when the Chernobyl disaster occurred a few kilometers away. Several sources report that the park was opened for a short time on April 27 before the announcement to evacuate the city was made, although several others report that it never opened. In any case, the park—and its Ferris wheel in particular—have become a symbol of the Chernobyl disaster.AttractionsLocated north-west to the Palace of Culture in the center of the city, the park had five attractions: the iconic Ferris wheel, bumper cars, swing boats, paratrooper ride and a carnival shooting game.RadiationRadiation levels around the park vary; the liquidators washed radiation into the soil after the helicopters carrying radioactive materials used the grounds as a landing strip, so concreted areas are relatively safe. However, areas where moss has built up are dangerously high; some areas can emit 25 µSv/h, among the highest levels of radiation in the whole of Pripyat.Films, games and literatureThe park plays significant roles in the video games S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and the film Chernobyl Diaries.It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Pripyat Amusement Park and many more Pripyat attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Pripyat tourist route planner.

NO LINES, you can ride every ride here twice or even three times in just one day. Fun for the whole family. Bring your own snacks for when the snack bar is closed! It is closed from 12:00AM to 11:59PM every day until the dawn of the 27th Millennium. Facilities were a little dirty, but after I chased a family of raccoons out of the toilet it wasn't too bad. Also remember to bring sunscreen! We were told to use SPF 10,000, but we couldn't find it and went with SPF 50 instead, which worked fine. And did I say admission is FREE? You can just walk right in! Overall, great trip, definitely created a lot of fun family memories! Would highly recommend.
This place is now iconic,and has become synonymous with the Nuclear disaster of 1986 when Reactor Number 4 blew up during some routine tests.The town of Prypiat was evacuated, and the residents of this purpose - built New Town were never able to return. Prypiat is now a time capsule to remind the world the consequences of a Nuclear Power disaster.

loved the rides here, they're all in working order! great for a family day out. i especially loved the 3 headed boars running about!
IT DOESNT WORK?? so i went here last week as part of my annual amusement park ritual but when I arrived the ferris wheel didn't even work, wtf? i advise for anyone reading this, don't waste your time here, I had to wait 50 hours for someone to let me in the ferris wheel and I bet I was roasting in the open sun while waiting, shame! Anyway I feel a little sick now thinking about all of this, my second head and I will end the review here
