Sands Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey Set For One Final Show
For years, Atlantic City has been the Las Vegas of the East Coast. A place where gamblers could go if they didn't want to fly across country, but still wanted the gambling atmosphere.
Lately, however, with the expansion of casinos all across the East Coast, and with the pending expansion in Florida, the city located in New Jersey has been struggling to keep its casino tenants.
One of those such tenants, the Sands Casino, closed its doors last November, and now plans are moving forward on imploding the casino.
Nothing in a casino town can be done without glitz and glamour, and that is the reason that the city is giving a Vegas style send off to the once popular casino.
The building will be blown up on October 18th at 9:30 P.M. A laser light show and fireworks will be involved in the send off.
A new casino will be built on the property by Pinnacle Development. It is expected to be ready to be open in 4 to 5 years.
