116 Reviews

The grand opening of the amusement park in the northern Ukrainian city of Pripyat was set for May 1, 1986, but sadly the catastrophic nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl just a few miles away on April 26 put an abrupt stop to that. In the panic-stricken aftermath of the disaster, the park opened for a few hours on the following day to entertain Pripyat’s population of 50,000 people — many of whom worked at the Chernobyl power plant — before they were all evacuated from the disaster zone.

Along with the city, the amusement park has remained empty ever since, standing as a stark reminder of the worst nuclear disaster of modern times; its rusting Ferris Wheel in particular has come to symbolize the tragedy of Chernobyl, with stuffed animals left as memorials in its dilapidated yellow boat-shaped seats. The merry-go-round is at a permanent standstill, the graffiti-covered bumper cars are decaying and, after 30 years, nature is beginning to reclaim the park, with mosses, trees and shrubs growing up through cracks in the concrete.

Although the park still contains minimal levels of radiation, its concrete areas are clear and it is open for brief guided visits. It has become an eerie tourist attraction included on itineraries in the 18.75-mile (30-km) Chernobyl exclusion zone, which is considered safe enough for two-day tours and includes visits to Reactor 4, the crumbling concrete high-rise apartment blocks of Pripyat and the abandoned villages of Kopachi and Zalissya. Passports are required for entry into the exclusion zone at the checkpoints.

"I was a 5yo kid, staying with my dad at our country house some 65 km away from the explosion at the night it happened. The next morning we heard our neighbor Nikolay calling us across the fence of the next house. Without going into further details, as the soviet KGB secrecy was no joke, he advised to get the hack out of the place right now. His brother was an emergency driver in Chernobyl. ... It was so hard to believe that something so terribly bad could have really happened next to us. Then I remember orange dusty clouds flying fast and very low in the afternoon, and I felt very sick.." - This is part of our guide’s personal memories. The Soviet government, and personally Gorbachov kept the whole tragedy agenda blackened, secret or ignored another 15 days! Learn in detail a true story about world’s deadliest technological nuclear disaster. It is the best way to experience the museum and absolutely essential go before your trip to Chernobyl.
