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.
It was an enjoyable time for the kids, and for the adults. The enterance presentation with the Coke memorabilia is interesting but would be better if they gave you more time to view them and walk around to check them out.
The movie before you enter the exhibits was cute for the kids. A serious adult would think it's a waste of time.
The 4D movie is great! Not good for kids that don't like suprises.
The tasting room is the best! Be sure to take the time to taste ALL of them. Just one sip at a time.
You leave with a free bottle of bottled coke! If your looking for suveniors, be sure to check out the gift shop downstairs for GREAT clearence merchandise.
I don't know what else we could have expected from the World Of Coke, but we left feeling exploited, after paying $15 per person, to be exposed to repeated commercials and advertising for Coke. First, you are forced to sit through a 7 minute animated movie, which is just a long commercial for Coke. Then you have the option of visiting various exhibits, which are mostly examples of past Coke advertising. The most interesting part was being able to sample the wide variety of Coke products from around the world. Overall, should be half the price, and it would be tolerable.
i loved it it was the best part of my summer.
i would really recommend other to go it was a very happy, exciting and refreshing day i am think of moving there when i am old enough and go every week
CANT WAIT TO COME BACK
I feel like I was taken advantage of financially. I forked over $15 just to be bombarded with Coke marketing. Not sure what I expected, but for $15, I expected more. Across the street, the Aquarium was far far superior. The World of Coke left me with a bad taste in my mouth, and ever since I've switched to Pepsi.
i lovede going to the coca-cola factory, i had so much fun! It was my first time going to atlanta and my first time in the coca-cola factory. I had so much fun! if i could, i would go a whole lot more! u should go! it's fun, and it's a good opportunity to spend time with your family!
The World of Coca-Cola was just ok to me. I went on opening day. There was more excitement going on outside with the people waiting in line. It's just a lot of old coke artifacts and memorabilia, a lil movie, a 3d movie, picture taken with the Coca-Cola polar bear and then taste coke from around the world. There is a soda called Beverly from England (dont let them fool you into drinking it) It takes like aged bottled seltzer water. The soda called bibo from Africa was the best. It has a fruity taste to it. The organic products were pretty good too, but not all you can drink, just samples.
I remembered the old World of Coca-Cola from a previous trip to Atlanta so that prompted me to make a visit to the new one. It's located across from the Georgia Aquarium and Centennial Park in downtown Atlanta. It's easily accessable by foot or by car. The nearest subway station is about a 10 minute walk away at the CNN center. Parking on the premises is about $10 or so, but if you go off one of the side streets, it's cheaper.
Admission is $15 for an adult. It seems a little high to me, but I wanted to check it out so I paid it.
The New World of Coca-Cola is full of the same rooms of memoribilia from around the world. One room contains things from 25 different countries. There's a video about the new "Happiness Factory" ad campaign (very cute) and a 4-D film about the Coke secret formula. There's a part where you can watch the bottling process, and sometimes the Coke polar bear is available for photographs. Everyone's favorite part of the whole thing is the "Taste It" section. There are something like 70+ sodas from around the world, divided into continents. You might discover something you really like that you never knew they made. I did.
The people who work there are absolutely fantastic. Everyone is smiling and very willing to show you around or answer any questions.
While I was there I was also asked if I would participate in a bottled water tasting. I know it won't happen to everyone, but it was kind of nice to do something like that that might affect the next product released from Coca-Cola. We were also given a Coke dollar to spend in the gift shop for our time.
This is a great stop for anyone who loves Coke memorbilia or just wants to check out some of the inside operations of one of the most popular soft drink companies, but it can be a little boring if you're not into that sort of thing.
You wouldn't think that a place like this would be so much fun. My husband and I went when visiting Atlanta recently and really enjoyed ourselves. The 4D experience was a hoot and tasting the Coke products from around the world was an experience all it's own. Great 1/2 day for the whole family!
