Another excursion on our City Pass while in Atlanta was a CNN Studio Tour. We knew that this would be a great activity to squeeze in between other events. They start a new tour about every 10 minutes and they last about an hour. Up until a few years ago they didn’t allow small children, but we found out while on the tour that they have lifted that restriction. We kinda wished for our tour, they’d bring it back.
The tour starts off with a long ride up the world’s longest escalator at 196 feet long; 8 stories high. From there you learn about how an International broadcasting network runs. You’ll see how a teleprompter works, as well as the now retired green screen for weather maps and the new technology that is now used. You’ll find out why you won’t see Wolf Blitzer or Anderson Cooper in the Atlanta studio.
After the tour, enjoy lunch at the food court at the CNN Center. Here you see, Rob made the boys get a pic with the patriotic Chick-fil-a cow.
I’ve been there!! Its a really neat place. Did you visit the world of Coca-Cola??
I took a tour there when I was in high school and had a blast! I’d love to go back again.
Pretty cool. Would love to do a tour like this one day! Thanks for sharing
This looks like such a fun tour!
What a cool trip! I’d love to do something like that.

Super cool! This is what I imagined it looks like. But only because I obsessively watch “The Newsroom”.

whoa!!! How cool! That’s a lot of computer screens.
This is so cool! I’m a bit of a news and politics nerd, so this would be right up my alley!
