Amusement Park

The Amusement Park is probably the most famous place from the Chernobyl zone. It was scheduled to open on 1st May 1986 but unfortunately due to the disaster this never happened. Apart from some testing, these attractions have never been used.

There was a ferris wheel, bumper cars, roundabout and swinging boats.

The amusement park was to be a permanent feature in the city and is yet another example of Pripyat’s high status in society.
