Atlantic City's Sands Casino implosion set for October

The Sands Casino Hotel will be the first casino implosion in Atlantic City, scheduled for October 18th.

Atlantic City's Sands Casino implosion set for October The dice will be rolled one last time for Sands Casino Hotel in Atlantic City on October 18th. At 9:30pm the casino will be brought down via an implosion - the first casino implosion in Atlantic City and the first night-time one for the state. Fireworks and light show will precede the demolition of the casino and the governor is expected to make an appearance before the event. Everything seems to be carefully planed for the implosion of the Sands Casino Hotel. The date and time correspond to the lowest traffic numbers in the city, a safety perimeter will be set up for viewing of the implosion and the demolition will happen no matter the weather, although personnel is hoping for a light rain to keep the dust down. 

 Pinnacle Atlantic City is planning a new $1.5 to $2 billion casino on the former Sands Casino Hotel site. The new casino is scheduled to open doors in 2011, but at this time Pinnacle is not yet saying what it will call the new casino or what it will look like.
