Six Flags Great America – Buccaneer Battle

Six Flags Great America is an amazing theme park in Gurnee, Illinois with awesome rides, great shows and food, and incredible attractions, plus Hurricane Harbor waterpark. Since the park’s founding in 1976, we have collaborated with its owners on over 300 projects including rides, restaurants, retail outlets, and more. Buccaneer Battle, manufactured by Mack Rides,  is an exciting interactive boat ride with water cannons built on an over 2-acre site including a 1-acre chlorinated pool designed in accordance with the Illinois Department of Public Health standards. Buccaneer Battle engages park guests along the ride’s banks as pirates on the ships and observers exchange fire from powerful soaker guns.

The attraction was designed and constructed and open for business in just under 8 months spanning the extreme winter construction season.
