The event took place in Las Vegas Sunday and was produced and aired live by The History Channel.
Pastrana successfully made two other jumps prior to the fountains, first by jumping over 52 crushed cars and breaking Knievel's record for the same stunt by two whole cars.
The third and final jump was reenacting Knievel's legendary attempt to jump the Caesar's Palace fountain.
Left with just 200 feet to accelerate to 70 miles per hour before the ramp, Pastrana said, "It's not the longest jump, but it's definitely the hardest".
"Man, it's been such an honor and been an awesome career".

Barrett, who is 46, has less of a judicial record to review, having just been nominated to the appeals court by Trump a year ago . Of the other two, he added: "Ray Kethledge and Tom Hardiman, they're a little bit less known by conservatives".
Knievel's failed jump over the fountains in 1967 was the most disastrous of his career, with his missed landing leaving him with several broken bones and a concussion that kept him in the hospital for nearly a month. "This was definitely the coolest thing I've ever done". Where, I'm jumping basically a street bike.
The 34-year-old then beat Knievel's jump over 14 Greyhound buses, which the late stunt icon accomplished in 1975 at Ohio's Kings Island amusement park, by flying over 16 buses. Pastrana has much better luck and made the jump successfully and it was actually a shorter distance than the bus jump at only 149 feet.
"This was so cool, such an epic time", Pastrana told The History Channel.
But Pastrana grew more serious knowing the most unsafe and technical jump was still to come.
"It's just such an honor to live a day in Evel's footsteps, and literally his boots", Pastrana said.
Pastrana jumped the fountain in the opposite direction Knievel did. "This is the home of the most iconic jump, one of the most iconic events that has ever gone down".
