The amusement park in the abandoned city of Pripyat. The park was to be inaugurated on 1 May 1986, but the Chernobyl accident on 26 April 1986 left the amusement park derelict forever. After the accident, inhabitants of Pripyat were evacuated by the Soviet government but were promised that they would be able to return to their homes soon. Since 1986, Pripyat has been a ghost town.
