World of Coca Cola
Atlanta's most famous invention is also the world's most popular soft drink and nowhere is this more clear than at this unique downtown museum. The new 20-acre (eight-hectare) complex features a 4D cinematic experience, and the largest collection of Coke memorabilia ever assembled, including a pop-culture gallery. The museum draws many visitors and features an exhaustive look at the history, manufacturing and distribution of Coca-Cola. Perhaps the most popular phase of the tour is the final stop, where guests are invited to sample vast and various recipes of Coke as it is marketed throughout the world. Tickets may be purchased through their website.
We had a group of 8 and everyone enjoyed it especially the 3D/4D theater. That was way cool! I would most definately visit again on a trip to Atlanta.
Good experience for the money spent to get in & I would recommend to others. There was a full line when we arrived, but the ticket line and entry line moved along quickly.
16 thumbs up!!!
From the man holding a frothy glass of Coca-Cola to the unique types of furniture put out for visitors, the World of Coca Cola is a one of a kind attraction: a must see for everyone passing through Atlanta. My family and I learned so much more information about the history of Coca Cola than I have ever known.
The experience was so fun, and this comment definitely includes the humongous room of international soda fountains and the unique Coca Cola advertisement theater. I recommend it to others; the visit was worth the time and money.
the funniest part was the 4-D movie and sampling all the different coke products from around the world. also i got in free due to being active duty military so thats a bonus.... highly recommend this to everyone... pretty inexpensive for about an hour and a half tour....
this is a place that anyone of any age will enjoy! I went there this summer and it was AMAZING! I really enjoyed the 4D movie(a lot of fun maybe not to those that have health issues, doesn't like to bve jerked a lot, etc.). I also enjoyed the tasting thing there! BTW, be careful of what you tast( i say this because there is one that taste really bad). The tour was ok. The employees were very kind, respectful, and helpful. Although, we had to wait for 10 minutes in order to get in the 4D movie. Oh yeah, talking about the 4D.............you get wet in it! My cousin enjoyed it and didn't want to leave. A great familly place to go and a place wear you can have a BLAST! It's also worth the $
Enjoyed everything about the place. The movie was fun and seeing all of the commercials that you grew up with was fantastic. Highly recommend to anyone visiting in the Atlanta area with or without children.
I attended the original WOC in 1996 when I was in middle school. The experience was fascinating. The exhibits detailed the history of the company and how the beverage evolved and expanded over the course of its lifetime.
I went to the new WOC a few weeks ago with high expectations. I thought that perhaps the experience would be richer and more informative. What I recieved was a 1.5 hour commercial that I had to fork over $15.00 a head for (I know that we all love to pay to be advertised to, right?).
The experience begins by standing in line to go to a holding room reminiscent of a cattle barn. After another 15 minutes of standing, you enter another room filled with Coke ads from years passed. Sadly this was the most enjoyable part of the experience.
After being crowded in this room for another 15 minutes you enter the theater to watch a CG movie that seemed like it was taken straight out of Dr. Suess (again, I believe that the same sequences in this movie were at one point part of an actual coke commercial). For 6 minutes I listen to fairy-tale creatures tell me how great coke is.
After the forced advertising experience you then enter the rest of the attraction. There is a 4-D movie experience that jostles you around in your seat while you are again told that coke is so great and everyone loves coke (like, OK, we get it by now). This part is a lawsuit waiting to happen as many people complain of neck and back trouble after the ride.
There are two rooms at the attraction that really just show you a lot of advertising through the years. You are also able to see a small scale automation of the production process, which is pretty neat to look at, but still couldnt save the trip.
There is also the sampling room where patrons sample many different brands of coke. I still remember this part being better at the old world of coke.
You exit through a gift shop filled with $40 t-shirts and overpriced souveniers (I cant bash them, since thats pretty much the norm at these places).
Overall, I was disappointed. I felt that I was advertised to for the duration of the experience. It seemed like a very child-oriented experience. I feel that they could have done a much better job making the attraction a little more intellectually stimulating to say the least. If you have children less than 10 years old, then yeah, they might enjoy attending. Otherwise, pocket your $15.00.
This was a nice showcase of the history and impact of Coca-Cola in the US and around the world. The 4-d movie was quite good, and it was fun trying all the different Coke products from around the world. (You have to try the Beverly. Nothing else like it!)
