The Pripyat Amusement Park is an amusement park in the ghost town of Pripyat, Ukraine. It was to be opened 1 May 1986 in time for May Day celebrations, but the Chernobyl disaster occurred on 26 April 1986 and the city of Pripyat was subsequently evacuated. Pripyat remains abandoned to this day.

Radiation 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.
