    Maybe it's the Ticketmaster booth? :confused:

    They might release details nearer the time. Will let you know if I find out

    I'm still awaiting my tickets by email to print off as well

    Am just off to Post Office now though to pick up other tickets I bought for the swimming and goalball

    can you get access to the anish kappoor helter skelter with that ticket?

    Favelado Oh you've got green eyes.


    I like to imagine that was made from the Hackney fridge mountain. They melted them down and made something even uglier and with less artistic merit.

    I was wondering that. Given that according to him, they're going to charge something like £10 to go up it after the games, I can't imagine they'll let you go up if you've only paid a fiver for your ticket :(

    They've sold out anyway.

    grasping cunts. At the very least everyone in tower hamlets or hackney or wherever should get in for free for a nosy.

    You can go on that if you have a ticket to the Olympic Park but otherwise, you can't buy a ticket for that on its own

    What about the rest of us council tax payers?

    Anyway, I believe a lot of them did. My friend who lives in Newham got in to see the rehearsals for opening ceremony because he's a resident

    BUT, IT'S A SEPARATE CHARGE ANYWAY

    Details for The Orbit

    Tickets for the swimming for me and friend (although not the ones I wanted as there's an Irish swimmer I wanted to see). Swimming tickets don't entitle you to a Day Pass so we won't be able to see anything else that day except for the Olympic Park grounds.

    Tickets for goalball (which include Olympic Day Pass). That's an evening session I picked as wanted to see the park at night-time, whereas swimming one is 9.30am, and there's no way I'm going to stay there all day. Wanted Velodrome ones but hospital appointments got in the way of that :mad:

    I've just received my "print at home" tickets for the Olympic Park which I shall be giving away to my sister if she wants them

    There's no Orbit tickets available on the day we're going :rolleyes:

    I don't think I've ever felt more frustrated by an inability to buy tickets in my life

    ETA: not just the Orbit - the whole bloody thing obv :D

    oh well, they probably got to see the fireworks for free :D

    Bollocks, some cycling tickets became available a few hours ago but they were for next Friday which is no good to me.:mad: Gone now

    Picked up my tickets today (missed Post Office yesterday). Now getting emails.

    One of them says you can bring food in, so long as it fits in your bag

    Second point might be worth noting for whoever it was who was saying their session doesn't start 'til the afternoon and doesn't include a Day Pass. Still worth checking though. If I have a ticket for swimming that finishes at 11.30, then how are they going to stop me walking around the Park for the rest of the day, whereas if someone has a ticket for a session at 3.30pm, does that mean they can't get into the park 'til 3.30pm? Furthermore, if they're asking you to arrive at hour or two before your session, then if the queues are moving quickly, you could be in the Park before your session anyway :hmm:

    eta: Ignore above, that's in relation to Olympic Park non event sessions

    Oh, I asked for you where the Hyde Park ticket office was and he was unaware of one.

    He said the only places to pick up tickets now are Stratford Gate and Horseguards (near the Cabinet War Rooms). Ticket office open 8.00am-8.00pm

    It's not "nothing". There's plenty to see and do: big screens to watch the action on, and garden and river areas to wander around, and other stuff. The Park is massive! Plenty of people have expressed an interest in going just to soak up the atmosphere. In any case no one is forcing you to go.
    Don't be silly. The Park is packed enough as it is without letting anyone just wander in. I can just imagine the queues at security if one could just turn up and get in.....

    Yeah, the horseguards ticket office was originally advertised as being in Hyde park. Picked up my tickets and free travel pass on Saturday. Hurray :)

    Could have told me that so I didn't need to ask :mad:

    Hi,



    Anyone still has those Oyster travel cards??



    I am looking to buy the green oyster travel card for my souvenir collection.



    I have already got the pink and the blue one.

    Am looking for the green volunteer travel card and the limited edition oyster card for general public.



    Please drop an email or comment here if anyone is interested in selling.



    Thanks.
