    what the heck happened to my comments! Very disappointing IAB!! I though this was a great video though. Fireworks give it a nice touch!

    Buildings don`t get destroyed by implosion. That was controlled demolition. They destroy certain keyparts of the foundation (with EXplosives) to make the building fall straith downward instead of sideways.

    It would be cool if they would start knocking down buildings like this, opposed to the boring wrecking ball cranes.

    That`s one of the old classics though, The Frontier. It seems all the old classic Vegas hotels you USED to see in old shots of the strip/Fremont are going or gone, The Sands, Stardust, The Frontier, what`s next, Glitter Gulch?

    "Buildings don`t get destroyed by implosion. That was controlled demolition. They destroy certain keyparts of the foundation (with EXplosives) to make the building fall straith downward instead of sideways."
    I think you`re confusing mechanical implosion with implosion in terms of buildings.
    Wiki it
