Spectators that attended a special preview of the opening ceremony for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games have been told to keep details from the ceremony quiet so as to not ruin it for other people.
Thousands of people that were in attendance at the ceremony practice have been instructed not to post any videos or images, although the rest of the world is probably hoping that they ignore Danny Boyle’s request and do so anyhow. 62,000 people are expected to attend the opening ceremony this Friday at the Olympic Stadium with billions more expected to watch from home.
Locog the Olympic organisers stated that the technical aspects of the opening ceremony rehearsal went very well and attendees seem to have enjoyed what they saw as they took to social networks such as Twitter to post positive reviews of what they saw. However, for those who were hoping for a sneak peak most of the attendees were very protective about the details, instead stating simply that it will be worth seeing this Friday.
However, some people were disappointed by the fact that transportation was a bit of a problem, as the Central Line was closed down, and if something is not done soon this may be a problem with looming strikes scheduled during the Olympics.
Traffic has also been a problem due to the Olympic torch travelling precautions, but this will of course cease to be a problem once the torch arrives in London. Before the torch arrives in London it has to finish passing through all of the 33 boroughs which has caused some traffic concerns for local citizens.
