World of Coca Cola

Today we took our first summer field trip to the World of Coca Cola. It is was a little preview of one of our history studies this Fall. We are going to study our state and create a state notebook.

I was going to wait until this Fall to take the kids there but, to celebrate their 3rd anniversary at their new location World of Coca Cola sold $3 entrance tickets for this morning only. It saved us $40!

The kids loved it! We enjoyed watching a 4D video reminiscent of some of the movies we have seen at Disney. We also enjoyed looking at old Coca Cola memorabilia. Learning who invented Coca Cola and how it all got started. Devin really liked the bottling portion of the tour. He is still talking about the cool robot named "Fizzy Bot". At the end of the tour we received a bottle of Coke that was actually bottled at the World of Coca Cola location just yesterday. I have always felt that Coca Cola tasted better in the bottle!

We all agreed that we experienced some unique tastes in the World of Coca Cola Tasting Room. We sampled versions of Coca Cola product from all over the world. Some of them good ... some of them not so good. Our favorite, hands down was the watermelon flavored drink from China.

Afterward, we spent some time at Centennial Olympic Park playing on the playground and eating lunch.

We've been to the GA Aquarium several times, but never to the World of Coke. We'll have to go there next time we're downtown. We love Centennial Park, too, especially when the fountains are going full force.
