World of Coca Cola Summer Kick Off Event Recap

World of Coca Cola Summer Kick Off Event Recap via ProductReviewMom.comI got to attend World of Coca Cola free to learn about their Summer Kick Off Event.

I've been living in Georgia for the past 8 years and haven't even gone to World of Coca Cola until yesterday.

My family and I had a great time learning about Coke and how it all came about.  Only bummer is I didn't get to know what the secret formula is.  LOL!

Did you know that Coca Cola history began in Atlanta back in 1886 by a Atlanta pharmacist John S. Pemberton?  I didn't know this at all.  Lauren knew Coca Cola was created here in Atlanta, she is such a smart girl!

The reason for our visit is that World of Coca Cola Atlanta has attractions that has several new features like a new mobile app, Pop Culture exhibit and “Moments of Happiness” film and my family and I were among the few to get to experience them.

I must say, "Moments of Happiness" film brought so much joy in my heart!  Just seeing all those wonderful family moments was great.  But I won't tell you too much because you need to see for yourself.

The Pop Culture exhibit is new that my family and I got to see of Howard Finster: Visions of Coca-Cola, a new exhibit in the Pop Culture gallery highlighting the works of American folk artist Howard Finster from Georgia.

I got to try out the new mobile app as well that does great things while you're inside the attraction like:

  • Discover fascinating facts about Coca-Cola®
  • Create custom photos of yourself and your friends with fun frames and cool effects
  • Keep a journal of your favorite flavors from around the world in the Taste It! beverage lounge
  • Connect instantly on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
  • Follow the World of Coca-Cola guide map as you go
  • Get general information about the attraction 
The app is available on iTunes and you can download it here.

You can't go to Coca Cola without drinking 60+ different sodas from around the world!  I haven't drunk soda in years, but for this occasion I did.  Some sodas were good and some were nasty!  Lets just say, beware of the soda called "BEVERLY" in the Europe fountain!

The girls, Mr. M, and I enjoyed the 4-D movie where we got to go around the world.  Our seats moved, we got wet, wind was blowing, it was such a thrilling experience!

We all had a blast at World of Coca Cola, and I'm so happy they invited us to spend the day with them.  Also it was great to meet more of my local blogging buddies!

  1. OMG, Louida! That top picture of the three of you with the polar bear is the absolute cutest!!

    While I did know the story behind Coca-Cola, I did not know that it all took place in the ATL! (Thanks for the history share! lol)

    I've added the World of Coca Cola to our things-to-do-in Atlanta itinerary! We're hoping to perhaps make it out to see my grandfather there if not this fall, then next Spring when K is a little older...

    Great post, Louida!

  7. That looks like a fun and interesting place to visit. They have a place at Disney World that has Coca Cola's from different countries and they are 'interesting' to say the least! I do remember when they made the BIG mistake of changing the recipe of Coca Cola.. THAT WAS BIG!

    1. I remember those drink stations at Disney World too. I think I may had a cup or two while there but since I don't drink soda I really didn't try them.

      Oh yeah, I remember the recipe change of Coca Cola and people were upset by it.
