What’s the Mirage volcano?
The Volcano at The Mirage is igniting Las Vegas once again. Since its opening in 1989, the volcano has been one of most popular attractions on the Strip. In 1996, the volcano added new water, lighting and sound effects. Today, the volcano is looking – and sounding – better than ever thanks to a $25 million redesign, which reopened to the public on Dec. 8, 2008. WET, the company responsible for The Fountains of Bellagio, led the design team for the volcano. The volcano includes two volcano systems, a lagoon and fire shooters that shoot flame on demand. These massive fireballs are capable of shooting more than 12 feet into the air. It also features waterfalls with surrounding pools including fire and smoke effects.
