    Coca-Cola store

    The wife and I were walking around Centennial park in Atlanta friday enjoying the day. We came upon the Coca-Cola museum which we had no interest in going to without our little one. But we did walk around to the seperate entrance that takes you into the Coca-Cola store, since I was carrying we coud not go in as not only do they have armed security at the door but you must walk through a magnetometer as well as be wanded maybe. Can someone explain the need for all this. My wife said that they should let us in since I have a permit, to bad it's not that simple.

    Was there a sign that said "No Firearms" ?


    IS THERE A SECURITY CHECK TO GO INSIDE THE WORLD OF COCA-COLA?
    Yes. Guns, knives or weapons of any kind are not allowed inside. Pets are not allowed. Only guide dogs for the blind, service dogs for people with disabilities and working dogs in training are permitted inside.

    Answered my own question. I suppose they want you to be totally defenseless.

    Did not even look for a sign. My question was why all the security for what amounts to a gift shop with a seperate entrance. The world of Coke museum I kinda get the security for that but not a gift shop.

    Maybe it was a store front for the FBI/CIA.

    Could it be that you could enter at the gift shop and walk through to the museum, so they needed security at both entrances?

    Forget Coke. You can go into the birthplace of Pepsi , an old pharmisist drug store, in New Bern NC for free, and take your gun.

    The reason (I was told) was that they have had thousands of threats over the years of people going in to try to get the secret recipe. Makes sense to me. Evil Pepsi wants the recipe SO badly so they can make a drink that is actually drinkable. :) The Coke Museum is amazing though. There are SO many different soda's not sold in the USA (because every cola maker can only market a certain number of brands at any one time). I love Orange Coke.

    Don't you watch TV? It's obvious the Coca Cola guys are all paranoid! The classic coke guys even tried to sue the coke zero guys for taste infringement! Personally, I prefer Pepsi anyway.

    You do realize that the original recipe included cocaine don't you? That is where the coca comes from in the name. Maybe they have a hidden stash there somewhere and they don't want people stealing it especially the DEA (Dumb Enforcement Agents).

    I heard on the news a couple of weeks ago that someone had broken the secret code to Coke. Now that you mention it, I haven't seen anything else on it.

    Another reason not to bother driving all the way to downtown Hotlanta.

    As for the recipe for Coke, it's not at the World of Coke or the Gift Shop anyway. From what I understand, the only written full copy is in the vault of SunTrust Bank. I suspect security at the location is more related to the area than anything else plus Coke corporate has always been a little extreme with it's rules.
