Las Vegas hotel implosion

The Clarion Hotel and Casino just off of the Las Vegas strip collapses in a controlled demolition early this morning. The 202-room hotel opened in 1970, and has been known as the Debbie Reynolds, Greek Isles, Paddlewheel, Royal Americana and Royal Inn, and closed its doors to the public last year.

Las Vegas Hotel Implosion Didn't Topple Elevator Shaft

An elevator shaft withstood a more than 2-ton explosive punch meant to implode a Las Vegas hotel, and crews now are planning a little more work to finish the job. Most of the 12-story Clarion casino-hotel crumbled in a pre-dawn Tuesday demolition designed to clear the off-Strip site for new construction. But despite the detonation of 4,400 pounds of explosives, the elevator core just dropped about four stories and remained leaning a bit to one side. Property owner and developer Lorenzo Doumani says the shaft still has a ways to go. The 200-room casino-hotel opened in 1970 as the Royal Inn. It was known over the years as the Debbie Reynolds — for its one-time owner — as well as the Greek Isles and the Paddle Wheel.
