Last month, the Metrodome, home to the Minnesota Vikings (and former home to the Minnesota Twins) had it’s roof deflated in preparation for its demolition.

Today, the final walls of the famed stadium came crumbling down and have been turned to nothing more than rubble.

You can watch the demolition below (though, the audio is a bit loud – they are explosions after all – and contains a small amount of NSFW language):

I’ve never really seen a building crumble to the ground in person – let alone one the size of professional sports stadium, but it sounds as if it’s quite impressive.

Talk about some insane reactions from the spectators who lined up to watch the demolition.

The Vikings new venue will be built in the same spot – a bit of an oddity given most new stadium/arena constructions take place in new areas so the team won’t be void of a true home.

But being the Vikings will have their new venue constructed in the same spot, they will play at TCF Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota for the next two seasons.
