“Fizzy, bubbly happiness in a can (or bottle)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

My wife and I visited the New World of Coca-Cola after Christmas, and we were impressed with Coca-Cola's attention to detail and their commitment to making each visitor's experience an enjoyable one.

After you purchase your ticket and enter the museum, you are led into a holding room to wait 10 or so minutes for a short immersion in Coca-Cola memoribilia and a really cool film! From there, it's pretty much a self-guided tour of the Coca-Cola museum. The newest exhibit ("The Vault") was pretty overrated; it was the longest line by far of all of the inside attractions, but there was no payoff at the end. You get to see a vault where Coca-Cola keeps the secret recipe. Wow...

The 4D film is a must-see, especially if you have kids with you, and you simply MUST go to the sample room, where over 5 dozen Coca-Cola products from around the world can be tasted. These are broken down by continent/region (Latin America, Asia, Europe, Africa, North America). There is a line to get in, and you will probably have to wait...unless you go to the bathrooms to the right. From the bathroom exits, there is a back entrance into the sample room. My favorite was the Inca Cola, which is bottled and sold in South America. It is really crowded, and the floor is very sticky, but it is a great way to end your 2 hours+ in the World of Coca-Cola. Make sure to get your complimentary bottle of Coke as you leave!!

“A must see in Atlanta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

We were in town to see some baseball games at Turner Field and we were looking for something to do during the day. We decided to go to the World of Coca-Cola. It was a great choice.
We spent almost 5 hours walking around. My favorite exhibit was the one showing Coca-Cola's partnership with Olympics. I was able to hold the Olympic torch. This was very cool. I also enjoyed the decades if Coca-Cola exhibit to see all the different memorabilia.
The best exhibit at the World of Coca-Cola was the Taste of the Nations where you can go and sample the different varieties of Coca-Cola products from the different continents. I tried a few of them from each continent. My favorite one was from Puerto Rico. It tasted a lot like Fruit Punch.
If I am ever in Atlanta again I will definitely go back to the World of Coca-Cola

“underwhelming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

For such a great marketing company we were surprised at how dull this was. We figured it would be a Disney like shameless propaganda Coke commercial and were totally psyched for this. They make a huge big deal of the "Secret recipe" angle, and there are exhibits and games and a video that harp on this endlessly. It's really pretty silly. I especially looked forward to old coke commercials ~ felt that an HD screening of "have a coke and a smile" and the classic "i'd like to teach the world to sing" etc would be much better done than it was. The room is small and dark and the graphic quality is pretty weak. The tasting room is sort of fun, but mobbed, and the floor is stickier than any keg party I ever went to in college. It's fun to taste grape fanta as it is sold in zimbabwe, and cute that they give you a little bottle of coke to go. If there's a real Coke fan in your group, go for it, but you could miss this and still live out a happy life.

“Good history, great technology and ability to sample 100+ international products”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2011

Guided for first 20 - 30 minutes, then self-guided thereafter. They really focused on the brand message (Happyness) and how the equity was created over the years. The kids really looked forward to sampling all of the international products.
