Ahoy mateys! Cross the rickety wooden bridge over the lagoon and climb aboard the sturdy and swift pirate ship Buccaneer! There’s a crow’s nest and sail up top, but you better pay attention to the skull and crossbones warning, because you’re about to take a rip-roaring voyage on the high seas. Don’t be fooled by the calm skies, because once you take your seat on the deck of this bounty-style pirate ship, you’ll set sail to breathtaking heights.
As the boat starts to rock swiftly up and back to dizzying heights, it feels like the Buccaneer is getting tossed around on the surf. You’ll swing higher and higher into the air until the whole vessel is practically vertical. As the ship arcs 180° into the sky, you’ll know these must be some serious untamed waves. At a full 66 feet high, you can check out the view of the Lakefront, but then hold onto your hats and get ready for sheer weightlessness, as you hang in the air for a moment, before slamming back down and swinging up the next wild wave with stomach-tightening momentum—in reverse! You’ll feel the wind race by as you soar even higher. Remember, brave pirates aren’t supposed to scream! This unstoppable velocity would make even the toughest sailor consider walking the plank. But if you’re daring enough, a life of adventure awaits!
