“welcome to the thrill show”

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. KANSAS: NOW WITH MORE VEGAS. So why build a grand tribute to high-flying rebellion in Topeka? As always with Evel, the “why” is fantastic and a little fuzzy. Maybe it’s because being in the middle of the country means we’re just a few broken speed limits away from anyone who wants to relive his legacy. Maybe it’s because it’s where Joie Chitwood, stuntman and inspiration to a fifteen-year-old Knievel, got his start. Maybe it’s because we just thought it’d be cool to build an Evel Knievel museum connected to one of the most iconic Harley-Davidson stores in the nation. Or maybe when you’re inspired to create a tribute to America’s most iconic daredevil, you drop everything and start chasing the dream from wherever you are. For us, that’s Topeka.
