TAKE A LOOK AT THIS!: Basketball arena demolished

ORLANDO, FL (CNN) - Onlookers gathered in Orlando on Sunday to see a piece of sports history blown to bits.

That's right, take a look the video.

The 23-year-old Amway Arena was loaded with explosives and demolished Sunday morning.  

All it took was about 20 seconds and 500 pounds of dynamite to turn the former Orlando Magic's home to dust.

The explosion sent a massive dust cloud floating over the downtown area.

The city plans to turn the former arena site into a mixed use development for high-tech companies.
