LONDON -- Tuesday, a few lucky Londoners were allowed into the Olympic park for the first time for the technical rehearsal of the opening ceremony.
Oscar winning director Danny Boyle designed Friday night's spectacle.
Boyle has said the ceremony will reflect Britain's past, present and future.
Fans who watched the rehearsal were impressed...and were keeping their mouths shut.
"Well, we can't say too much about it, you know. We've got to keep the surprise. So we can't say too much." "Spectacular. It made me feel patriotic." "Absolutely fantastic. It was genius. Absolutely brilliant, absolutely brilliant. But I'm not going to tell you a thing about it. You'll have to wait and see it for yourselves. Unbelievable. It made me cry, watching it." "Incredible. Absolutely incredible, blew my mind."
It's been let slip that the "Britain's History" open includes James Bond and animals.
