HAVE you got a golden ticket?

South Australians have “broken the internet”, snapping up the hottest tickets in town – the chance to tour the new Royal Adelaide Hospital next month.

If you missed out, your chances to visit the nRAH before it opens to the public on September 5 are slim; about 3000 people will tour the site in a series of public tours in July.

South Australians have jumped at the chance to tour $2.3 billion hospital, with the free tickets, that could be booked on a State Government website, selling out within less than two hours.

On Monday, SA Health announced dates for the public tour days would be held over four days from Thursday, July 20 to Sunday, July 23.

But there is still one more chance to see the hospital before it opens, with the State Government releasing extra tour tickets on Tuesday at 5pm for one additional tour day on Saturday, July 29.

The tours will give the public the chance to get an exclusive first look at the new facilities, including the emergency department, intensive care unit, inpatient bedrooms and outpatient consulting rooms.

Health Minister Jack Snelling told The Advertiser he was “overwhelmed” by the response.

“It’s basically broken the internet,” he said.

“The demand has been so huge that we’ll release another tour date at 5pm today.

“We’re expecting those tickets to be snapped up pretty fast and I really think this just shows how excited South Australians are of their new hospital.”
