Buccaneer is a Pirate Ship located at Six Flags St. Louis in Eureka, Missouri, USA.

History

The ride first opened on April 14, 1980 as Buccaneer, replacing the Super Sports Cars.[1] It was later renamed Yankee Clipper and again renamed Gotham Harbour. In 1996, the attraction was renamed The Joker Inc. as the surrounding area became Warner Bros. Backlot.[2][3]

The ride was reverted to its original Buccaneer name in 2024, with the supervillain theming removed.[4]
