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.

HE WAS THE MAN

Randy Heitman

The man

You guys open on monday

Didn't realize that he had his rig shipped to London too. Thanks for the pics!

Watched this on WWS on ABC I was 15 wow

He was the shit

It’s hard to believe that a reporter once asked him if that hurts when he crashes🤪

I can’t wait to visit:)

Watched on Wide world of sports. 15 yrs old

Evel was interviewed for ABC Sports before the jump. He said that the down ramp was too short and he wouldn't clear the last bus. He knew this and went and did it anyway. He crashed instead of removing the last two busses. Balls of brass.

Bad Dude

That guy was a hero to so many of us!! I still have the scars on my legs from Rat Trap pedals trying to jump logs on my bike!!

Awesome

Robert Craig Knievel Jr. (October 17, 1938 – November 30, 2007), professionally Evel Knievel ... Shortly after getting married, Knievel started the Butte Bombers, a semi-pro hockey team. :21

Most people dont know this he was a hockey player

I've said it before .. The REAL AMERICAN BADASS

Just looking at his bike, I could imagine what more he could of done with a bike with the right suspension on it!!

Jumping those old bike with virtually no suspension, it must have been like trying to jump with a tank

The baddest stuntman of all time and my childhood hero that made me jump people with my big wheel

I remember that day when i was 9 like it was yesterday. I saw it on CBS news first, in disbelief. Then watched the ABC Wide World of Sports delayed broadcast in anxiety, hoping he would make it somehow. What an awesome and incredible event. And what a comeback months later! Little did I ever know that i would be able to make these tribute videos AND to see all Evel's stuff in person 40 some years later! www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLEo3VqCePq4KptoiEDYUM-IsUoSJh6ca0

My son's(@ 2mo)first foray into the world was to have lunch with Evel. And me and 50 others. Awesome!! He was something else!

Every morning since September 11th, 2001 they have been doing the Pledge of Allegiance before opening on Saturdays. This Saturday join us at 8:55am to recite the pledge together. Also these guys 👮 will be making an appearance and singing the Star Spangled Banner. 🎊🎉🇺🇸

When he was thirteen years old, Mr. McCaw saw Evel make the jump, then get throttled by hooligans.

Wow - I was there also...with my dad but, I'm still in San Jose.

Cow Palace...1971?..completed the jump but couldn't stop and ran into the back wall.

I saw him in s.f. as well at brooks hall riding a triumph

A group from Tulsa is heading your way Sunday June 3 . We should be there about 2 pm . Hope to have 15 to 20 riders.

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.
