The 24-story Monaco Tower at the Riviera, which closed last spring, will vanish within a minute or two after explosives are detonated about 2 a.m. Tuesday.

A second tower, the Monte Carlo (not to be confused with the hotel-casino resort of the same name), is slated for implosion sometime in August.

The building is located at 2901 Las Vegas Blvd. If you want to watch, know that police make sure visitors and locals are kept at a safe distance from the implosion.
