Would you like to visit the Vault of the Secret Formula? I have four tickets to the World of Coca-Cola to give away – just in time for Mother’s Day. Be sure to enter to win!
Over the last year we made it a goal to visit local destinations. Each child got to pick an attraction within an hour of home for a family destination birthday. We started off with a visit to the World of Coca-Cola for Middle Girl’s birthday last August. It was a Sugary Sweet Saturday!
It was perfect because our ‘field trip’ complimented our history studies. We are still singing the Coke song and talking about the fun we had there. Next we enjoyed at day at the Georgia Aquarium for shark-loving youngest girl. Later in the year, since our youngest loves trains, we made a day of it at Stone Mountain Park with a ride on the train around the base of the mountain.
On May 8, 1886, a pharmacist named Dr. John Pemberton carried a jug of Coca-Cola® syrup to Jacobs’ Pharmacy in downtown Atlanta, where it was mixed with carbonated water and sold for five cents a glass.
The Vault of the Secret Formula
And now we have another destination to look forward to. We will soon be going back to the World of Coca-Cola! To celebrate Coca-Cola’s 125 years, a new exhibit has opened! The Vault of the Secret Formula. Guests can see – and get within just a few feet of – the actual vault containing the 125-year-old secret formula for Coca-Cola for the first time in history. Enjoy this short video about the new exhibit:
We are so excited to visit again! And here is even more more information to help you plan your visit:
- About the Vault of the Secret Formula
- History of the Coca-Cola Company (including an animated history video)

Now for the giveaway! I have four (4) tickets to give away: Two adult and two youth tickets with a total ticket value of $56. You may visit World of Coca-Cola anytime this year since the tickets have an expiration of 12/31/12.

How fun!! What a great give away 🙂
For mother’s day I like to keep it simple, it’s really time with family that I treasure.
Kerri E says
We went two years ago and the kids have been asking to go back ever since! Maybe it has something to do with the tasting room and the bottle of Coke you get to take home :). For Mother’s day, I like to keep it simple , too, spending time with my family doing whatever comes to mind that day.
Judy McCormick says
We went 2 or 3 years ago and had so much fun. I love Coke so much that my children gave me a bottle of Coke for a Christmas present. They know what their Momma loves. At the World of Coke, the commercial room was my favorite. My favorite way to spend Mother’s Day is to do a special activity with my children and also spend time with my momma.
In 11 years of living in Georgia, we have still never been!
And I agree on keeping Mother’s Day simple. Just quiet, laid back time at home with my family. Ok, maybe the quiet part isn’t possible 😉
I’m with Kendra! I’ve lived here 12 years and haven’t been! We do love the aquarium and stone mountain. I’m looking forward to some trips to the laser show this summer!
Suzanne Broadhurst says
Love that place! Would love to go back for a second taste!
I have wanted to visit since I was a kid and was never able to. Now I’d love to visit with my own kids!
My secret recipe for Mother’s Day is to keep it simple and family-focused! Mom sleeping in, choosing an activity that can be enjoyed by all, spending time outdoors…all great ways to celebrate our Mothers!
Mary R says
Hubby and I wnent to World of Coke a few years back for our anniversary weekend. It was loads of fun. My kids have never been. We were just discussing what we should do for Mothers Day weekend. Either going to NC,TN, or GA. (we live in SC). This would be so perfect if we won! Thanks for the chance to win an awesome prize.
Darin Spears says
I agree Mary, I think it could be a great surprise for my wife from my kids.. The have been planning on what to do this mothers day. I am sure my wife is also going to enjoy the vault!
Kim Arrowood says
Ooo we haven’t been since they moved and my girls have never been. We should go since they loved the little exhibit they had at Disney trying all the different kinds.
We would love to win these tickets. We live about an hour from downtown Atlanta, and my son has been begging to go.
Hi Tricia! I haven’t been to WoC for many years, and the girls have never been. It’s high on the list of desitnations, though. As a native Atlantan, I’m a bit leery of this secret vault idea. I’ve lived under the impression that if you accidentally found out the Coke formula, you’d be shot immediately! 🙂
As for Mother’s Day, I’m more interested in seeing my own mama than in anything for me. Spending time with her IS my gift!
What fun! I like to keep things smple and just enjoy some downtime on Mother’s Day.
I haven’t been in years… this would be fun!
My secret to a happy Mother’s Day is to just appreciate my sweet children… and to make sure I spoil my own mom, too!
My DH and I lived in GA many years ago, so your mentioning some of our favorite places to go is neat. Thank you for the quick trip down memory lane. Some day Lord willing we will go back and show our children a few of these haunts. Might be a while as we now live in the Pacific NW (learning about Lewis and Clark!).

Breakfast in bed!!!!!
We do a picnic on the living room floor with takeout appetizers for Mother’s Day evening, and I think it’s great 🙂
I’d love to go again. I went when pregnant with my DS and would love to take him.
We’ve never been to their so I would love to win this and take the family. As for Mother’s Day, I try to enjoy it no matter what…it’s not about the gifts, the cards or the special thoughts…it’s about the 3 precious blessings that call me “Mother” and the amazing husband that God gave me.
I was just telling my kids about my visit there in college on a spring break trip. It would be a blast to share it with them.
Jessica H says
My kids love World of Coca Cola. At least one of them asks to go for their birthday trip each year.
For Mother’s Day we usually go to the park and have a picnic. 🙂
Sleeping in is my secret formula!
