Not that impressedFlag review
It was just ok. Lots of memorabilia and a cool 4D movie but it was mostly memorabilia, old ads, machines etc. The highlight by far was the tasting room in which you can taste Coke products from various countries. We got the tickets thru a deal otherwise I'm not sure it would be worth the $16 per adult and $12 per child. We spent about 2 1/2 hours and that was stretching it. The lines were crazy after we left which was 3 on a Saturday. The entrance line was 2 hours just to get in the building. The line for pictures with the Coke polar bear was 45 minutes long and the same went to see the formula in "the vault". We chose to skip both. Would I do it again NO but if you have extra $ and time it's ok. Definitely look for groupon deals or use Coke reward points for free tickets if possible.
Tips for Families
Go early and pre-buy tickets online. Use Coke rewards points for tickets and check out groupon and other online sites for discount tickets for sure.

Mildly amusing, but at the heart of it, something about paying $16 a head to walk through an hour-long commercial bothers me. The history was, as expected, whitewashed...no mention of coca extract (a cocaine analogue) being an early active ingredient? Really? I was lo...
This is a fun place to go for about 2-3 hours of entertainment which both kids and adults will enjoy equally. Visitors are gently 'herded' through the lower portion of the facility for crowd control purposes by starting off in a standing atrium with some memorabilia in it and welcomed by a cheerful Coca Cola team member who warms up the crowd with facts about the objects including the famed 3 missing Norman Rockwell original pieces of art which Coca Cola, the corporation, is desperately seeking to acquire. Then it is off to a short overview movie about what makes Coke so meaningful to people the world over, then you are finally relased to explore the rest of the Museum/ Mini Bottling Facility/ 4 D Movie Thea...
Yea I gave it four stars, but really it's a 3.5 in disguise... The top reasons why it was worth the trip: you get to take a picture with the polar bear, the tasting experience where you get to try 60 different flavor's of soda, interesting bottling process, and vast history of Coca Cola in the making. For the most part, the tour is a giant subliminal messaging tool. They first make you watch a movie about these weird characters with no eyes "inside" a vending machine. All of them drink coke and the movie becomes a sing-along in the end. It's bearable though, don't worry... and kids may actually enjoy it. After the movie, you get to take a picture with the bear, which I thought was really cool. It moves and b...
Unhealthiness aside, Coca-Cola is a marketing powerhouse and the best known global brand. It also happens to make me think about happy moments from my childhood. Nothing better than an ice cold Coke in a glass bottle. Yum. So I have a bit of a different spin on the World of Coca-Cola as I went for a business event during a conference in Atlanta. The place was closed down for our group so we got to enjoy Coke-tails, unhindered shopping in the store, and all exhibits without having to pay or wait in line. From that perspective, it was a pretty fantastic experience! The entire building is just another piece of the marketing puzzle for the brand. They had fountains for different Coke beverages from all over the ...
Yes, it is a tourist trap. Yes, it will cost you. Yes, its a bit over the top in some spots. But it's an icon, its Coca Cola! You just have to go see the place to get it out of your system and if you have a child/ren then it is definitely a must see! Tickets are $16 Adult and if the kid is 3+, then they are $12. I really wish they would adjust that. When you go in you have to stand and wait for the next guided tour that features an every so bubbly employee (note sarcasm) telling you all about the history and what is in the room you are in and the first bowl of coke and how much it cost, etc. etc. From there you go to this theater that features their new gimmick that has tooth achingly sweet characters t...
My boyfriend and I came here on our recent visit to Atlanta. We bought the combo pack with the CNN tour for $30 per person. I had been here once many years before when I lived in GA, but a lot had changed! The entrance with the Coca-Cola bottles from the Olympics is pretty cool. The first room on the tour has a lot of fun stuff to look at as well. I especially liked the Coca-Cola pj pants and advertisements from other countries. Next, they take you to watch a movie called happy-land or something ridiculous and this is where the tour really lost points for me. It had the colors of Avatar with singing creatures including a pair of furry lips. It was very disturbing actually. Halfway through, I leaned into...
I've been here about 3 times and the experience has always been great! Let's start with it's location. It's right across the Georgia Aquarium and from the outside you can already tell that Cocacola is its theme. The admission fee isn't too expensive and once you enter you can take as many pictures as your heart desires. They usher you into this Cocacola History Vault where a staff member entertains you and educates you on the history of Coke. He asks where each family comes from and you can see that a lot of them are tourists (since they come from different parts of the world just to visit this place). Anyways, you get to watch a Cocacola film in 3-D that I'm pretty sure they change every now and then. After...
