WORLD OF COCA-COLA GIVES GUESTS THE VIP TREATMENT WITH ALL-NEW COKE INSIDER JOURNEY

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 3/29/21

Small-Group, Guided Tour Takes Fans Behind the Scenes at Atlanta Attraction

A new adventure awaits Coca-Cola fans and Atlanta explorers. For a limited time, World of Coca-Cola is launching Coke Insider Journey, a two-hour, VIP experience in which small groups of no more than 10 guests have the entire attraction to themselves. Offered on Saturdays and Sundays beginning April 3 through May 16, the premium, guided tour includes exclusive features and souvenirs tailored to fans who want to level-up their visit.

Behind the Bottle

As a dedicated guide leads Coke Insiders through the attraction, they encounter performers who lead special presentations and shows, such as a soda jerk demonstration and Olympic torch show-and-tell — all exclusive to the private tour. The guests also gain unprecedented access to the exhibits, including peeks into how the bottling line and beverage fountains operate. The premium offering is perfect for both returning guests who want to experience World of Coke in a new light and first-time visitors seeking an over-the-top inaugural trip.

Premium Perks

To commemorate the unique visit to World of Coca-Cola, Insiders receive complimentary items including a reusable cup filled with their favorite drink from Taste It!, a keepsake pin and printed and digital photos with the popular Coca-Cola Polar Bear. Guests also receive free parking, free coat check and an in-store discount to complete the VIP treatment.

Safety First

The health and safety of World of Coke’s guests and employees are of highest importance. Adjusted operations in compliance with guidelines from health and government authorities include: mandatory face coverings for everyone over the age of two, required social distancing, thermal temperature scans, enhanced cleaning routines throughout the attraction and timed tickets purchased online in advance.

Coke Insider Journey is ideal for those who want to enjoy all that World of Coca-Cola has to offer — and more — but feel more comfortable doing so in a smaller, more personal group.

Let’s Talk Tickets

Tickets for Coke Insider Journey are $50 per person or $500 to buy out the full, 10-person timeslot. Groups of less than 10 that do not buy out the full slot may be paired with other small groups for no more than 10 guests total. Tickets must be purchased online in advance.
