Default Titanic Belfast

Much hype today about the new visitor attraction, pity the booking website isn't working!

http://www.titanicbelfast.com/Home.aspx

Tried booking, shows numerous dates as available, allows you to select tickets then proceed to payment which is where I see the message
“Order has timed out or entry time expired”
Can't book any dates - not a good start!

Booked mine on Weds without any probs. Website says you can't take buggies round with you, but they have a kind of buggy park to leave them in. Doesn't say how much the underground car park is though, might be cheaper to park in Odyssey car park?

all this hype about the Titanic is getting a little tiring now. People are aware that the ship sank?

Yes, there was a story about not being able to bring in buggies to certain parts of the exhibition (only a small portion of it). Apparently they allow baby slings or can provide one if you don't have one yourself for those areas. Buggies are allowed elsewhere in the building with no problems.
Life in this world is, as it were, a sojourn in a cave. What can we know of reality? For all we can see of the true nature of existence is, shall we say, no more than bewildering and amusing shadows cast upon the inner wall of the cave by the unseen blinding light of absolute truth, from which we may or may not deduce some glimmer of veracity, and we as troglodyte seekers of wisdom can only lift our voices to the unseen and say humbly "Go on, do deformed rabbit again.....it's my favourite". © Terry Pratchett in "Small Gods"

Apparently there is going to be an additional charge for this pleasure.

For anyone's who's been to this, could you answer a quick question for me?

It seems there's an area where you can't take buggies - is this due to space restrictions or is there another reason? I'm just wondering how wheelchairs are accommodated or is this area going to be out of bounds for those in wheelchairs?

Yes, it seems that on the tour of the Titanic Building, the general public do not get to see the 'Grand Staircase'. This is despite the fact that it's shown on their website!

It seems that as the Titanic had a passenger class hierarchy, so does the new building.

No, they can't ban wheelchairs. Otherwise they might incur the wrath of the legal system.

No point me going then - I'm not really interested in most of the other c**p, I just want to walk down the staircase like Kate Winslett!

If I've paid for the damn staircase twice (once to build it and once if I'm visiting the building) I expect to at least see it.
