2020 holiday highlights at World of Coca-Cola
♦ Make a memorable entrance: By walking through a 28-foot-tall ornament! The outdoor winter wonderland is complete with larger-than-life holiday decorations and trees wrapped in thousands of lights. The glittering lights and giant ornaments dotting the lawn set the scene for the rest of the experience that continues inside.
♦ Check out a scent-sational new exhibit : We all have scents that immediately transport us back in time, especially those associated with favorite holiday memories. Scent Discovery, World of Coca-Cola’s newest exhibit, offers insight into the science of smell and puts your nose to the test. See if you can identify a variety of aromas, and then get beverage recommendations based on your favorite scents.
♦ Indulge in seasonal sips: Visit the Taste It! beverage lounge, where you can enjoy seasonal favorites like Gingerbread Coke. Small groups are led through curated samplings, so you can safely try out limited-time holiday flavors, as well as drinks from around the world.
♦ Enjoy tales of Christmases past: Stroll down memory lane when you stop by A Coca-Cola Christmas Celebration. The exhibit showcases historic, seasonal Coke ads and artifacts from around the world, including Coca-Cola’s newest cinematic holiday spot, “The Letter.” Don’t forget the big man in red at the History of the Coca-Cola Santa exhibit.
♦ Shop for everyone on your “nice” list: You may be able to knock out some holiday shopping at the Coke Store. You’ll find apparel, glassware, home goods, and holiday-themed items like ornaments and decorations. (Those who prefer to shop from the comfort of home can check out CokeStore.com for even more holiday goodies.)
♦ Sleigh the selfie game: The perfect holiday snap is at your fingertips, so be sure to smile with your eyes over top of your mask. Pose in front of Santa’s sleigh or the 7-foot Coca-Cola Polar Bear. You’ll get great pics to share online or use for your holiday cards.

Hours: The World of Coca‑Cola is open 7 days a week, and is generally only closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
Check today’s hours.

- Kids (age 3-12) — $13

When you buy World of Coca-Cola tickets online, sales tax is added to these prices, but there is no extra service fee.
Discounts to World of Coca-Cola are rare. When they pop-up around spring break or the holidays, the discount is generally on a 4-pack of tickets rather than on individual admission. In December of 2019, World of Coca-Cola held the only free admission day in its history — and we don’t know if they’ll repeat in 2020.
An annual pass gives you unlimited admission to the World of Coca-Cola for a full year from the date of purchase. Annual pass prices are $34 for adults, $26 for kids, and $15 for seniors.
The World of Coca-Cola is located at 121 Baker St. in downtown Atlanta, adjacent to the Georgia Aquarium in the Centennial Park District.
