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.

Was at the Museum yesterday. The Jump is incredible. After getting to relive all the unbelievable stunts he did for us, you have an opportunity to take a virtual reality jump of your own. You totally get the experience of jumping. Awesome!

There's jesus, lemmy and evel knievel. 3 greatest blokes to walk on earth

Evel Lives

I remember watching it on tv when they was a little kid. I told Evel that I had watched him Jump the snake River and he corrected me and told me he didn’t make it. I said close enough.

Bob...!

My Hero"Good Bless

And he did his jumps on a stock Harley.

Awesome

Was a huge influence. ..dit it his way.

What is the extra lever on the clutch side of the handlebars, a brake lever ?

I was lucky I saw Him Jump twice Super Cool

We had a great time there, a must see for all ages!!

He is my icon

I think it's too cool that the museum of the only true Dare devil is in Topeka Kansas. I hate Kansas and I won't spend money in that state. But I'll make an exception for that trip to the museum. Going to go to it soon

Such childhood memories!!! Miss him!

The man

There Goes my Hero he’s ordinary

What is going on with the double lever deal?

My childhood hero!!!

Huge Fan!! My Idol👊

The staff was wonderful and had so much great knowledge to pass on. Definitely an experience my kids won't be forgetting!

The food was great! The people were friendly. And the information was very interesting! Also loved all the bikes!!

Evil lived in Clearwater and used to frequent my friends pub. I had a great conversation with him telling him about all of my broken bones from all the stupid stuff I had done over 30 years of motorcycles, martial arts, football and general nonsense. We both a good laugh about. It was great to become friendly with a childhood hero of mine. R.I.P. Evil.

Mi idol

LEGEND

#evelheros

Let's see Pastrana jump that thing🤔

I'm pretty sure this is when my dad took me to see him.

No 1 can r will take his place!! RIP

I have to know. How would Evel respond to the jumps on Sunday night?

Invite Travis to the museum since he just made some of the same jumps Evil did. It was awesome to watch Travis as it awesome to watch Evil.

Dillon Boose

Can't wait to come there and see all the awesome things

We’re gonna have to go see this

My E.K.toys from the 70s

Cool

Wife and i came last Saturday, We loved it! We even did the jump! Gotta do it. Amazed at the collection. Great price too. We will be back. Spent about 2 and half hours in there.

You could easily spend 3 hours in the museum, if you are a true Evel fan. And don’t miss The Jump. It’s an incredible 4-D experience that truly gives you the feeling of making a jump without any of the “risk”.

we spent prob 2-3 hours there was an awesome time 13 of us went and most did the jump also every daredevil kids dream

Jon Teresa Justin

Go check it out

Jeremy Boyd

Went by on I 70 and saw the sign. Looked at my wife and Said was Evil from Kansas? Lol we will deff come some time.

Crystal Worsham Fortin, I want to go

We can't wait to go back!

Jennifer Jason Summer-Wade

This place is fantastic.

I would go, just to see the truck

Going to the museum is on my bucket list. Hopefully be going there next year. Can't wait :).

Went and spent 3 hrs. You have to to really take it all in. And do the 4d jump. Pretty kewl. And almost bought a newer Harley. Lol

good luck but no this evil knievel could have jumped LAS VEGAS with the technology of today let travis jump with the bikes evil used i hope he makes it but evil will always be the king period

This is Going to be Awesome !!

Good luck Travis pastrana! #199

Not sure the co-op of Evils name was right.

What time in the UK? Can't find it on the listings

Watching Being Evel in History Channel right now.

Scott Nelson

Theres only one EVEL THE KING

Billy Tilmon are you going to watch this?

No comparison. Evel was on heavy Harley. Travis is on a dirt bike with killer suspension. Still a crazy jump, but evel is king.

He’s jumping on an Indian

can't wait to see it

THANK YOU SPONSORS WEBPAGETHANK YOU SPONSORS WEBPAGE

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.
