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 came on a Saturday afternoon. There was a long line and it took an hour to get into the museum, but it was worth it. They give you free Coke products at the US tasting station, then you go into the International tasting station. I tasted Fanta from Costa Rica. I would probably come here again, but on a weekday instead of a weekend day.
At first I wasn't really excited about it. It didn't get good until the documentary they show at the beginning; after that it just got better. The exhibits were really great (be sure to see the Andy Warhol exhibit while you can). The best part of the whole experience was the taste test of the Coke sodas from around the world. Overall, it was a great experience and totally worth it.
I loved the new world of coke! It was so fun and everyone there was so nice and helpful! I'm taking my friends from out of town there and can't wait!
My favorite part was of course trying all the different drinks from around the world! :]
The visit was well worthwhile. I will go again. One dislike, the prices in the gift store are too high (ie. straw cannister $30, purse made out of recycled coke tabs $110, and a flannel coke jacket $85). The best part was the all you can drink sampling at the end.
Quite an improvement from the older World o' Coke. But I do miss the Soda Jerk demo. We liked the Andy Warhol Exhibit and the 4-D movie. They need some food options there because you need something to counter act all the sugar from all the sodas you try there. The gift shop gifts are way too pricey. $28.00 + for a t-shirt to advertise their product. Find a coupon if you can. I would recommend the City Pass if you are going to be in town for several days.
