WATCH: Iconic Georgia Dome is Demolished


The iconic Georgia Dome in Atlanta has been completely destroyed by way of demolition this morning.

The arena — which has hosted Olympics, Super Bowl, and countless other major sporting events — was destroyed after its 25 years in the ATL. It has been replaced by the nearby Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which was erected earlier this year.

Watch the destruction below in GIF form:

CNN reports that it will take three months for crews to clean up the rubble and what is left of the building’s structure before new construction can begin in the area. Check out fans, local organizations, and commentators saying their goodbyes to the stadium on Twitter below:
