Evel Knievel's wax figure at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas


Evel Knievel

Sit on Evel's replica Harley Davidson XR-750 and listen to the engine roar to life.

Evel Knievel was an American motorcycle daredevil, an entertainer famous in the United States and elsewhere between the late 1960s and early 1980s. Knievel's nationally televised motorcycle jumps, including his 1974 attempt to jump Snake River Canyon at Twin Falls, Idaho, represent four of the twenty most-watched ABC's Wide World of Sports events to date. His achievements and failures, including his record 433 broken bones, earned him several entries in the Guinness Book of World Records.
