Evel Hero USA TodayEvel Hero USA Today

RED BLOOD. WHITE SUIT. AND BLUE SKY.

For daredevils and dreamers of all ages, come rediscover the spectacle of the death-defying Evel Knievel show, now open and flying sky-high in Topeka, Kansas. Witness the incredible collection of the physics-defying bikes that launched the legend. See his iconic 1974 Mack Truck & Trailer "Big Red." Examine the star-spangled helmets (battered, and beaten and beautiful) that undoubtedly saved Evel’s uninsurable life more than once. Listen to the eye-widening, imagination-sparking, and the doesn’t-seem-possible stories that defined an American icon.

Has anyone been able to find that Triumph? Seems I’ve seen a single photo of it (post Caesars crash)) but no record of its whereabouts since.

Is the museum interested in this motorcycle in Branson, Missouri?

Thanks for supporting and helping spread the word of our local businesses! I love it when local supports local!!!💗💗💗

Awesome

Would love to do a virtual jump like that looks like cool places to visit

Double check on Lupita's. I heard they were closed.

There is the Kansas State Museum but that is on the west side of the city.

Brown vs board of education site as well

Dont forget about heartland park.

🤝We recently loaned a few artifacts to the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee for their new Daredevils Exhibit, featuring a cavalcade of performers who’ve leaped to fame! The exhibit runs until September 8th. We are very excited to see this in person, who else is going? 🙋‍♂️🙋‍♀️ ... See MoreSee Less

Great to see collaboration. It would be great to have a promoted ride from EK museum to National Motorcycle Museum to Milwaukee! Three tickets and you get a patch!

Saw Evel in Los Angeles outside the Circus performance. 1966? I have followed him ever since because we share the same birthday.

You must see this. My family and I were invited to the opening night reception. Was a great honor to loan them my Corvette that my friend Tim Chitwood drove.

Wish I would have kept all the pieces I had, several bikes and figures, motor home, van, stadium, etc

Seen this exhibit, it's pretty cool.

Awesome! Legend!#1

I saw the EK exhibit some years ago at the HD Museum. It was fantastic!!

I cut the rear tire on mine to make a knobby style that would shoot rooster tails, epic toy, our family cat was terrified of it!

I will be seeing it next month!

Great place

Awesome

One of my all time heros! Long live EVEL! A true legend! #respectevelkenievel

Cool but let's face it nothing compares to the Evel Museum everything else would be a letdown. Like I saw Pink in concert last year and she was incredible and I'll never be able to see anyone else in concert again without being letdown. Same thing here. 😎

He was the King of Cool...inspired many kids to build those ramps and ride full speed,some made it...some earned the broken bones....I did a little of both!

Grew up in the ‘70’s - my hero!

One of my Idles when I was a kid When I was 12 I jumped 16 shopping carts on a Schwinn stingray with those ape hangers handle bars and a banana seat no sissy bars and cleared them and when I landed I broke my tailbone on the front of the banana seat but didn't crash went to the hospital I thought I was the coolest kid in the 6th grade That was in 1974

a man’s man ! fearless ....

best museum ever,,i will be back....

Watching it to at home

Evel Knievel with awesome I still have his lunch box Evel Knievel van motorcycle so much more it's over 40 years old just like new

I didn’t waste my time watching Evel live 2...NOBODY can compare to what he did in his lifetime! If you want to impress me a gain my respect for your “stunts” use the same kind of bike Evel used...NOT these light as a feather dirt bikes..Lets see you use a stock Harley or Triumph..Let’s see how far you get!

Watched at home but evil live 2 was very disappointing but the shows before hand were awesome

Thanks for showing this page from Kalamazoo Michigan

Was this "supposed to be the world's longest jump?"

Heard the dude crashed and injured both ankles and won’t be jumping. Is that true?

Is anybody going to jump that setup? Looks like testing didn’t go too good

YOU CAN'T LOOK AWAY. AND HE WOULDN'T WANT YOU TO.

It doesn’t matter how many times you watch him jump, it’s always a hair-raising experience. And nothing showed his preference for showmanship over sanity like his attempt at Caesars Palace. That’s the fearless spirit we’ve rekindled for a whole new generation with the Evel Knievel Thrill Show Museum.
