    Amway...Arena

    ORLANDO --
    It had various names throughout its 22-year history, but now, the old Amway Arena is about to be no more.
    What was once the original home of the Orlando Magic, as well as the signature spot for Orlando concerts and events, has since been surrounded by a security fence, as crews prepare to tear down the arena starting Thursday.

    Old Amway Arena starts coming down today, brick by brick


    I can't believe its finally time to tear it down, that place holds memories for me. I remember when it was the T.D Waterhouse. I went to see events there like Monday Night RAW when Wrestlemania was in Orlando, but most importantly I graduated from high school there. I'm sad to see it go.

    looks like they did a good job. from what I can see they smashed the Middle floors out with the first blasts and then set up larger blasts to drop the roof on it all and finish it up. VERY cool.

    ^^^ From that video, you were like right in front of me. I recorded the implosion too, along with some people getting mad because a guy put a girl on his shoulders blocking the people in the backs view.

    haha that was me putting my wife on my shoulders.
    I looked around and there were people on stepladders, people holding up iPads, etc so I didn't think much of putting her up on my shoulders. I was surprised how pissed people got, straight hurling insults, I couldn't get her down quick enough. And then a 60 year old guy behind me kept talking shit and wanted to fight. Really WTF.
    We were there around 6:45a (before most people) and I guess if I wanted her on my shoulders she should have been up there the whole time so people wouldn't have been surprised. My fault.

    lol for real that was you?? Yeah I heard the old guy saying something like "oh you think you're more important that the rest of us?" something like that. I got there like at 7:20, finding a parking spot was difficult. You probably didn't see me, I was the spanish guy in the white shirt behind the guy with the Ipad.

    Yea, he was pissed.
    Really though, it was my fault for not really paying attention. When we got there (and for some time after that), Colonial was still open one lane EB and we were standing in the back (because we had the bicycles and I intended to put my wife on my shoulder the whole time). I knew they had closed all of Colonial EB but I guess I didn't realize how many people were standing behind us.
    Either way, it was a bad situation that I think people were overreacting to.
