World of Coca-Cola Summer

Tickets for you! Don’t miss the giveaway at the end!

You might know that the World of Coca-Cola – besides being all things southern and rich in history – is one of our favorite local destinations here in Atlanta, Georgia. We went just last week to check out the new movie (made me cry!), try out the new app (love the fun facts!) and of course – see the newest art exhibit!

Love the fun facts with the World of Coca-Cola app – learning things we haven’t before! And the new Pop Culture Howard Finster exhibit is great. Plus, of course, the tasting room. Vanilla Coke is my favorite. How ’bout you? #WOCCsummer

Moments of Happiness Film at World of Coca-Cola

We think the new Moments of Happiness film is the best one yet! It is in the theme of the Moments of Happiness machine that surprised visitors. Enjoy the trailer.

Happiness is all around us and it happens every day. That’s the spirit of the new film in the Coca-Cola Theater. The six-minute film celebrates some of life’s most memorable moments experienced by people of different ages and cultures around the world.

Howard Finster: Visions of Coca-Cola Gallery

The World of Coca-Cola’s new exhibit in the Pop Culture gallery features works from Howard Finster. A self-taught artist and Baptist minister from Georgia, Finster is considered one of the most important folk artists of the 20th century. He loved Coca-Cola and often used the iconic bottle shape in his artwork.

Besides really loving the Howard Finster displays in Pop Culture – especially his paint palette and supplies – the children had a fun time creating a masterpiece with the touch screen.

Howard Finster: Visions of Coca-Cola will include items from The Thomas E. Scanlin Collection, including:

  • A 13-foot-tall Coke bottle “big enough for man to stand in” that depicts historical figures in the artist’s unique style
  • The 8-foot-tall original folk art bottle, which Finster created for the 1996 Olympic Games and inspired a global art project
  • Tools from Finster’s studio that became works of art themselves

About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.

  1. I have always been a coke fan, and we do a lot more exploring of our area during the summer.

  2. We’re always looking for ways to have fun around Atlanta. I would like to take my kids, cousin, and brother to the World of Coke. It looks like you had a good time!

  3. I haven’t been in at least 16 years. I would love to go take the kids. Your posts always make it seem so much fun.

  4. We’ve just been to the World of Coke one time as a family and had such a good time. Thanks for the chance to win, Tricia!

  5. We love the World of Coke! The are always adding new things, so it is always new to us when we go.

  6. Amanda B. says:

    Vanilla Coke happens to be my favorite, too! :) We have yet to visit the World of Coca-Cola, but after reading your description, it’s now on our bucket list for the summer. Thanks so much for sharing your adventure and the reminder that we are surrounded by places to explore, wherever we are!

  7. I’ve never been to the world of coke. I love the taste and would love to let the kids sample all the different flavors.
    We do explore our own hometown as much as possible in the summer.

  8. We tend to explore closer to home in the summer, but try to make at least one jaunt
    far off… which only means about a four or five area radius! We’ve
    never been to the Coke place, but we’d love to go and also see the art that Steve Penley
    has painted there.

  9. Bonnie Boucek says:

    The fact that the company tries to give back to the community through different programs. One that we really miss is the Coke Cola summer camps. The kids loved that camp — so much to learn and do.

  10. Would love to see the World of Coca Cola with my homeschooled child and friends!

  11. I would love to explore more around our city this summer.

  12. We have never been to the World of Coke but we would love to go! Looks like a great field trip.

  13. Heather B. says:

    We’ve been to World of Coke before once and loved it! We’d love to be able to visit this wonderful place again!

  14. Victoria says:

    oh! I’d love tickets to go! Everyone knows it’s my favorite drink. Field trip/road trip!!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  15. Leigh Anne Borders says:

    We are always taking time to do things in the summer. I try to avoid hearing Mom We’re Bored;) Coca Cola Museum would be a great place to visit and learn about the history of something that is so vital to Atlanta.

  16. We’ve been doing Saturday field trips to finish up the school year and have found some interesting parks.

  17. Love World of Coke! Wish they had a World of Coffee! :)

  18. Sometimes we forget to explore the things in our own backyard, literally & figuratively! Thanks for the reminder that we don’t have to go far this summer to explore some great things!!

  19. Julie Quinn says:

    My girls love visiting the World of Coke. We save up Coke Points and get tickets at mycokerewards.com. Would love some tickets to go again without having to save up our points. :-)

  20. Curtis Miller says:

    I like to visit Atlanta and take in all there is to take in. As a native Georgia boy, Coke is my only beverage of choice!

  21. This could be fun. We are moving to the Warner-Robins area later this summer from Turkey(the country). I look forward to seeing all that Georgia has to offer.

  22. We love to sample the different Coke flavors from around the world!
