One of our favorite Atlanta attractions is The World of Coca-Cola. I know I don’t need go go into detail again about my affinity for the brand, the fact that I’ve worked there for eighteen years (gulp), that Coke & Peanuts are a fave household snack OR that it makes an annual appearance on our summer bucket list. But… I just LOVE Coke!
We were delighted that Sister and her littles could join us for our fun summer outing this year. After lunch at Taqueria del Sol (another Atlanta must-do), we piled the littles into my Jeep and were there in just a few short minutes.
When we entered the lobby we were treated to ice cold Coca-Colas in aluminum bottles!! It was SO perfect with how insanely hot it was outside.
The first part of the tour is structured. It kicks off in The Loft – a room full of Coke memorabilia from around the world. Some dating back from the very beginnings of Coca-Cola in an Atlanta pharmacy. Our guide was incredible and really connected with the guests in the room – we were fascinated to learn that we were part of just a few in the group from Atlanta, and that about seven different countries were represented! Our host greeted every single one with a hello in their native language.
After the brief intro, you move into a theater for a six minute film. I have to say – I’ve seen it numerous times and it always gets me choked up and has me leave the room with a huge smile on my face, an extra pep in my step and my heart feeling just a little too big for my chest.
On exiting the theater, we found the Polar Bear just coming into the room for a meet and greet! He’s so happy and snuggly – the littles loved him!
At this point, you are pretty free to roam and explore! We headed into the vault where the actual secret formula for Coke is secured. Did y’all know that the formula is actually a secret?! It lived for many years in the Suntrust bank before being moved over to the new World of Coke!
On exiting the vault, we took our time exploring many interactive exhibits that are fun and engaging for the whole family. Not only will you find artifacts from all over the world, but you can even see a Coca-Cola bottling facility in the works.
The littles are too little to know the infamous red American Idol couch, but that didn’t stop Sister and I from making them pose for a pic.
Upstairs you will find a multi-sensory 4D movie that takes you on a journey to find the secret formula. The littles LOVE this every time!
But, at the end of the day, it’s the tasting room where we laugh, play, make faces and spend the bulk of our time. It’s fascinating to taste Coca-Cola products from all over the world!!
When it was all said and done we had as much fun this time as at our first visit years ago! And, compliments of The World of Coca-Cola, I am excited to be able to “share a coke” with one of you!!
