Amway Arena Demolition

The old Amway Arena in Orlando is no more. The 23-year-old building was demolished Sunday morning March 25 2012,with a series of explosions. The arena cost $102 million when it was originally constructed. hundreds of people came out to watch the demolition. They cheered when the structure came down. Crews used about 600 pounds of dynamite. The arena was the original home of the NBA's Orlando Magic until their new arena with the same name opened 18 months ago. The old building was also known as the O-rena and the TD Waterhouse Centre. The city of Orlando paid about $2 million to demolish the building.
