It won't be open then, but you can get pretty close to it, and the Olympic Stadium, by going to the ViewTube...

This is the first time I've seen this structure. \\after watching the video, hearing one gentlemen say it can only be compared to the Eiffel Tower I'm left shaking my head. This is plain and simply one ugly tower. It looks like a broken roller-coaster. It seems like your Olympic comity has failed again and wasted to much money just like on you 2012 Olympic Logo.

I can only hope they find a flaw in it and have to tear it down after the Olympics. What an eyesore.

It's definitely a striking design from that angle.

I really hope they light it like Wembley stadiums arch, which looks spectacular. And I think it would look great if they could get the light to 'pulse' around the Orbit, would make it come alive!

It is a very wondrous portfolio according to me this is the best view from the my point of view,The claims were made this week by the Olympic Park Legacy Company, which is asking organizations to bid for the operation contract of the controversial sculpture, designed by artist Anish Kapoor and engineer Cecil Balmond.
