A family demolition team from Phoenix, Maryland descends on Vegas to take down the legendary New Frontier Hotel and Casino complex. They’ve imploded 20 structures in Vegas but the Frontier proves to be particularly difficult. It’s a stubborn old building, filled with massive amounts of rebar, forcing the team to load over 5,000 sticks of dynamite. Further complicating the plan, the client wants to send the building out with a huge fireworks display. Loaded with dynamite, fireworks and steel, the Frontier impresses to the last.
