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.

Perfectly put! 😁

Did it in August, along with my grandson. We both recommend it.

Need to come do it again!

It was a lot of fun, and a little terrifying!

We talked with Doug Danger on our podcast after I was at the museum. Doug is the one who made and filmed that jump for the museum. soundcloud.com/chickenduckpod/99-doug-dangrer

Wife and I Loved It.

I will be back to visit the museum but I can't do the jump again it's so realistic I almost barfed lol

O’ YES BACK IN THE DAY I DEFINITELY ENJOYED EVIL A BUNCH.

He went to Utah to film this. This is where they did that show.

I agree

saw him jump at KCI raceway, MO in the mid 70s

Good clean family entertainment

Evel the GREATEST daredevil ever

Dangerous

I probably seen this back then.wow.

He was one crazy man

Wat a crock of shite

My third grade teacher quashed my dreams when she informed me I could not be Evel Knievel when I grew up.

I remember watching that episode.

I'm horrified and intrigued all at the same time. Like a car crash.

He'll yay......

Don Honn

That's sorry!!

Donny is the peacock on that mask show.

Goodnight everybodayyyyy

Hello, my name is Frank. I come from Germany. A few days ago, when we cleaned up my parents' memory, my Evil Knievel was found in the closet. It was stored dry and dust-free with other toys in a chest. It is in the original cardboard box, with the Evil Knievel figure, the moor bike helmet, the acceleration system and the instruction manual and nothing is broken. My joy was great. Of course I have tried him after all the years everything runs as always. My question is: What is its value today and is it of interest? You are welcome to send me an email to lanz2816@mail.de, I will send you photos as well... Greetings frank

😎 Johnny Dare received his Archive Collection Wheelie Cane today!! Johnny was one of the last to interview Evel before his passing in 2007. Recently added to the museum is the audio clip from that conversation. #startplanningyourtrip ... See MoreSee Less

Most folks do not know that he used this helmet in the Shark Jump besides the Holy Cross and Kingdome Jumps. That is where those scuffs came from--the crash at the Chicago Amphitheater over the sharks.

Elvis' manager did a contract on a fabric dinner napkin. 🙂

Zoom in on dollar amount crazy

Color me lucky

Is there an EK museum in Las Vegas ?

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.
