It's a sure sign of the summer season on the way: Six Flags Great America debuted a splashy new ride Friday. It's called the Buccaneer Battle. The ride is a mixture of lighting, music and special effects.

The pirate-themed attraction includes 14 ships with room for eight crew members. There is a 450 foot channel through waves with interactive features along the way.
