“Great History lesson in marketing and advertising”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I'll admit I am not a soft drink fan. But this is truly an America Institution. Coca-Cola is iconic as it is pervasive in American Culture. It is something that should be done at least once if you have the chance.

It is a an excellent example of Edward Bernays' treatise on Propaganda: " THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.
We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society."

ie. "Things go better with Coke."

“I like to teach the world to sing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

I really enjoyed this tour or was it a long commericial? But commericals are often entertaining. this is interactive and fun the hole way a great family visit. Did you know if you save up coke rewards you can go free. the VIP tour is worth the extra money also for the extra special treatmernt.

“World of coke”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Second time I have been there. First time was much better, they had more exhibits. We were there on the 4 th of July this time. ... bad choice. .. it took 40 minutes just to get through security. There were so many people that it was not very enjoyable. The only bonus was my admission was free since I'm retired military. I suggest going during the week not near a holiday.

“Do and don't of World of Coca Cola”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

1. DO get there early. The line to get in gets long pretty fast. 2. DO use mycokerewards.com. You can save up points and get your tickets for free. 3. Do double check what you buy in the gift shop. Its no fun getting home without one of your items.( To be fair, it was busy in there). 4. DO NOT be the first to try forgien coke products. Atañen back, watch the faces of your friends as they try them. Hint- there is one named like a female that taste liked a female had done someone wrong and this is how it her revenge on the world. 5. Do not ridge through. U want to take it all in.

“Great downtown activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The wait to get in can be long, but once you're inside there are two levels showing the history of this drink around the world. The 4-D theater was fun. The commercials from around the world was interesting too. The highlight is drinking all coca-cola products from around the world. Plenty of interesting flavors!
