The tasting room is pretty cool. You can taste all the different coke offerings from around the world for free. Everyone is in a sugar frenzy pouring a few ounces of different drinks and rushing to the next one. They are sorted by continents. Everyone seemed to agree the drink, Beverly, was the worst and kids were having fun watching their friends and family try it and see the reactions.
Some people may feel that the World of Coca Cola is a rip off or nothing more than propraganda. However, I found the World of Coca Cola to be quite fascinating. Whether you like it or not, the Coca Cola icon is part of our culture and history. Here you can really learn almost everything about Coke. I was disappointed that there weren't as many flavours around the world as I would've like, and didn't really find anything too exciting or unique for purchase at their gift store.
The World of Coca Cola will soon be moving to its new location right next to the Georgia Aquarium - making all major attractions all within walking distance of each other!
The World Of Coca Cola is located next to the Atlanta Underground, so it's very easy to find. It's like a Coca Cola museum, where you can learn about the history of Coke, since its begining in Atlanta in 1886. There are a couple of ad compilations that are really nice too. When you finish the tour, you get to the Tastes of The States and Tastes Of The World rooms, where you can taste some 36 different flavors of Coca Cola products from the States and from around the world.
Then, of course, there's a gift shop with LOTS of coca cola merchandising.
As most already know, it's not the President who is in charge of US policy making, but corporate powers. And what is the most well known corporate power in the US? The very symbol of American corporate "freedom"? Well, Coca Cola, of course. And their headquarters - the REAL White House - is right here in Atlanta. It is... THE WORLD OF COCA COLA!
Tells the history of coke which I breezed through. I wonder if someone has an old unopened cocaine flavored soda still around. If that happened today the vioxx lawyers would have a field day:)
The best part is the tasting area. In the first area you can sample all of their products that are sold in the U.S. Then, the next area is the international area where you sample their drinks sold in other countries all over the world. Some of the flavor are very what were they thinking bad for example the chinese lychee soda. There is one soda that I wish they sold in the US. That would be the green apple soda, which tastes like the jolly rancher sour apple candy I love.
Birthplace of Coca-Cola. This museum/world is a nice experience for the whole family. It gives a detailed history of where this great soft drink is all about.
Also a great shop at the end of the tour through the museum.
See how Coca Cola first got started (yes they originally had cocaine in it!) Then taste all the american brands produced by Coca Cola along with thier products from many other countries (Watch out for the one from italy. YUCK!!)
The World of Coca-Cola museum is a worthwhile visit. Find out how this soft drink company became the most well-known in the world. You'll learn of the history of the global corporation and be able to see how the company has grown and evolved over the years. There is also a tasting room where you can try every Coca-Cola product sold worldwide!
Monday - Saturday, 9 am - 5 pm. Sundays, 11 am - 5 pm
You cannot leave Atlanta without going to Coke Museum, 'cause that's where Coke was invented more than 100 years ago. Find out the history of world's #1 drink, and try the international samples of soft drinks distributed by Coca-Cola Company in the 'Tastes of the World' section.
I've seen a lot of reviews on here about the old World of Coca-Cola but not many about the new. The New World of Coca-Cola should not be missed. I've been three times since it opened (about three years ago) and each time is a delight. It's educational, international, fun and there's a great build-up for the tasting room. Also, there are lots of interactive stations for kids and adults. Some of you may be skeptical--- I was too... But it's far more than just an unapologetic commercial for a mutinational brand. It is a story about how a hugely successful international business came to be....And Good or bad, Coca-Cola is an American icon. It is fascinating to see how it was built and what it means today. Also, if you want to do things that are little off the beaten path, this facebook page that I recently discovered is is updated pretty regularly and great for ideas.
Have fun and Enjoy Atlanta!
