About

Mission - Rock It!

www.missionrockit.com

Mad Mike Hughes always wanted to be famous. So much that he decided "What can I do to become and instant super star dare devil?" So he decided to break the world record for the longest ramp jump in the world.

www.madmikehughes.com

Mad Mike has always been a modest limo driver, although he jumps limos for distance as well, and his entire life savings has gone into building this rocket event.  He is the current world record holder for a ramp rocket jump, but he wants to shatter that record on February 12th 2016 (Just 1 day before his 60th birthday).

This is a once in a lifetime event to see a Mad Man get into a steam rocket and launch himself at 320 miles per hour over 2000 feet. Just the blast off will shake the canyon right down to your britches. The day of the launch will be filmed by the media as well as by a large production crew producing a feature documentary about this event. Mission Rock It! An exclusive documentary on this event with our KickStarters as the co-producers and stars of the show.

Mad Mike,  along with Stellar Pictures Productions, is also producing a reality documentary on this jump and Mad Mike's upcoming attempt to rocket to 65 MILES above the Earth next year. This is a dangerous jump and the last attempt ended with several people badly hurt and nearly killed. When you're a daredevil it's either Fame or Flame.

Come join us in this exclusive 1500 spectators of Kickstarter historic event with live music, oddities, events and fun for all ages. We have 1 Mission - Rock It!.

Risks and challenges

This is an enormous challenge. It is also expensive to throw a large concert, event, and rocket launch. A lot of agencies get involved like FAA, insurance, police, fire dept, security services and the amazing shows that we are lining up.
Without the help of the Kickstarter family is simply isn't possible.
This will truly be a once in a lifetime event that will make the history books. Help us and come be a part of the journey.
