One of our favorite Atlanta attractions found a way to make visits just as fun post-covid. In case you didn’t know World of Coca-Cola re-opened July 15, 2020, with new safety protocols, timed ticket sales, mask requirements for visitors older than two years old and distancing requirements inside the building. When we were invited to take the Insider Journey with VIP-level service, a designated ambassador, and a smaller tour group of ten or less – we masked up and ventured out. It was A.J.’s first time inside a building for more than a quick grocery run, but after a few minutes, his anxiety diminished when he noticed how WOCC stepped up its safety guidelines for visitors.
I’m delighted to host a giveaway for four (4) general admission tickets. You’ll find the entry guidelines below.
First, I’ll go over the safety steps WOCC has taken, then look at three must-see experiences when you visit.
World of Coca-Cola Safety
- Purchase timed tickets for WOCC.
- Bring your mask and a backup mask (in case it gets dirty or your sneeze in it).
- Follow distancing guidelines.
- Sanitize your hands at the available cleansing stations.

I admit. At first, I wondered how we would enjoy an experience that required you to smell scents when we had on masks. But it worked.
Inside Scent Discovery you’re encouraged to experience all the flavors that go into making Coca-Cola products around the world like fruity, spicy and sweet. Then use the nearby coffee beans to clear your pallette of all the fragrances.
Here are A.J. and Antoine Sr. releasing each scent, then listening to our ambassador who described some of the notes you’ll experience in each scent experience. You’ll be amazed at some of the simple fragrances you’ll taste in your favorite Coca-Cola products.
Besides Scent Discovery, there are plenty of interactive experiences that explore the World of Coca-Cola brand.
There are plenty of hand sanitation stations near every activity.
A.J. enjoyed this historical look at Coca-Cola through the decades. Now that I look at the experience, I noticed that they’re located at a perfect height for children and adults. They’re also easily accessible for visitors in wheelchairs.
Our ambassador did a great job explaining how the Coca-Cola bottling company grew over the decades. We learned how its original message and identity are still with us today. Look back on all the ways Coca-Cola touched our lives through World Wars, desegregation, The Olympics, and expansion across the world with various flavors of beverages.
By far the most popular experience at WOCC is Taste It where you get to sip beverages from almost every country in the world. Of course, it’s changed due to covid protocols. A visit to the Taste It! Experience is the only time you’re allowed to remove your mask while you’re drinking.
This “sampling experience altered to comply with FDA guidelines regarding self-serve beverages. Freestyle service unavailable.”
Your group is reminded to stay together and visit the same tasting center. An ambassador will tell you when it’s time to remove your mask to sample ten different beverages.
Although it’s not as open and widespread as the previous Taste It! Experience where there were more beverages, it’s still the highlight of the tour to sample all the beverages you just learned about.

I didn’t know they were still closed. This is great info and glad to see they will be following those protocols.
We haven’t been in a while! G only likes sprite so she takes one sip and is then done. The other two love tasting everything. I love the nostalgic videos best
I think the scent discovery would be neat. My kids would really enjoy that.
I have never visited this place, but have heard so many good things about it. We are a Coca-Cola brand household, so visiting makes perfect sense!
The scent discovery would be perfect for us because we love weird smells, good smells, all smells lol! My son is often sensory seeking and this would definitely fit the bill!
It’s been years since we went! Would love to try it out!
