Robbie Knievel, in yet another stunt, staged a New Year’s Eve attempt at jumping over the Volcano at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
The stunt involved three ramps and a 200 foot jump over the 900-degree fireballs that shoot out of the volcano. He has completed 350 jumps and set 20 world records. Kaptain Knievel is the son of famed daredevil Evel Knievel who died in 2008.
According to those on scene, he actually jumped next to the spewing fireball and not directly over it. Fireworks shot into the air as the stuntman landed on the strip. He told casino officials that if they wanted him to actually jump over the volcano, they would have to remove palm trees and build a ramp that would have disrupted their valet parking in front of the hotel.
After the jump, the 46-year-old Knievel said his dad would have been proud and said his New Year’s resolution was to be like a famous Rolling Stones guitarist. “Like Keith Richards. I’m going to keep smoking, drinking and jumping in my fourth decade.
