Nokkakivi (Finnish: [ˈnokːɑˌkiʋi]; translates to "Beak Rock") is an amusement park in Lievestuore, Laukaa, Finland. It is located along the Highway 9 (E63), and the distance from the amusement park to the nearest big city, Jyväskylä, is 24 kilometres (15 mi). It is owned by Bellingham Oy.[1]

Nokkakivi is the newest amusement park in Finland, although for the time being it has only a limited number of pre-owned rides on its ride list. Nokkakivi park is, however, notable because it is one man's dream come true, instead of being established by an organization which is the case with other Finnish amusement parks.

One ride is especially notable in the Nokkakivi park because of its long operational history in Finnish amusement parks. Round Up has been in three other Finnish amusement parks: 1961–1976 in Linnanmäki, 1977 in Särkänniemi and 1986–2002 in Tykkimäki, before it came to Nokkakivi park for its opening season.
