The tour starts with a ride up a "free-standing" escalator that takes you up 8 floors non-stop and is supposedly the only of it's kind in the world. You are taken to a viewing area that's a simulation of the control room (which includes an outline of CNN's history), followed by a sample studio and then get to walk around (but not inside, of course) the Research Room and Broadcasting Studio of CNN as well as HLN. The tour ends with an inspirational 4-minute video about journalism in general and CNN in particular.
There are some interesting things like how the weather charts appear and one interesting photography trick they show you, but that's pretty much it.
It's a 50-minute tour and for $15 (regular) I think it's worth it, but I wouldn't suggest dropping something off your itinerary to go see this.
I would also not recommend this for families with kids younger than 5 - they will just get too bored and will want to be running all over.
