Some of the big names might broadcast from the Big Apple, but CNN's worldwide headquarters are here in Atlanta alongside their sister networks. See behind the scenes of the international powerhouse & you may catch a glimpse of your favorite personality.
Definitely not worth it – This is the second time that I've been and I get more and more disappointed every time I go. I ended up going with some family in town but could've just saved the money.
Worth the money – This tour was interesting and informative. Great look at CNN around the world and you really do get to look behind the scenes. My husband and I enjoyed getting to see the news be filmed and broadcast live while we watched from above. The building is fun to look at even if you don't pay to take the tour. We thought it was very worth the money. Young kids might not find it interesting and might be bored on the tour. We would recommend it to people visiting Atlanta. There is a food-cort in the building too if you want to grab lunch while you are there. They seemed to have a lot of food options.
Only Ted could bring you an entertainment-shopping-dining complex of these proportions. – Overview
Situated in the heart of downtown Atlanta, CNN Center is more than just the global headquarters of the CNN News Group and Turner Broadcasting. It's also a massive entertainment-hotel-shopping-dining center where you can literally spend a day and stay the night.
Start with a tour of the CNN Studios for a behind-the-scenes look at global news in the making. Then head down to the atrium for shopping and a variety of lunch possibilities. Next, check out the interactive studio inside the Turner Store--it's loads of fun. CNN's "Talk Back Live" is telecast in the atrium daily at 3pm. To be in the audience, and possibly voice your opinion on the topic of the day, be sure to reserve a seat in advance. Worked up an appetite yet? Wrap up your visit with an elegant dinner at Prime Meridian in the Omni Hotel.
Not worth the money – This tour would be good for children, and might be worth 50 minutes of an adult's time if it were free, but $10 is a huge waste of money. The one interesting thing is being able to stand behing a glass looking down at the newsroom, including watching the anchor reporting. There is no serious attempt to discuss the news process - e.g., the word "reporter" doesn't come up once! From the guide, there was a lot of repetition, and discussion of fascinating, important facts like how much the anchors are paid, and whether or not they buy their own clothes (they do).
Flexo – Could be better I must say, it's all done with the way of "we are the best" and cause I'm Dutch [from the Neterlands that is], I will say what is the best, it's just big, not better then other studio's
