CN3125USHNYSM5403

On October 25, 1975, motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel successfully jumped 14 Greyhound buses at Kings Island. Though his back wheel hit the safety deck above the 14th bus, his landing was successful and he held the record for jumping the most buses on a Harley-Davidson for 24 years. The Kings Island jump captured the highest TV ratings in the history of ABC's Wide World of Sports and would be Knievel's longest successful jump.
