Kinda boring. However, did ride on the longest escalator! Nice staff and gift shop. There was a nice food court to have lunch after.

Great to see behind the scenes at CNN. The ride up was entertaining... the sound booths and control booths were intimidating with all of the switches and knobs and yet the crew were operating everything without problems. The tour taught me a lot.

You do need to be able to walk for the 50 minute tour, use stairs and one large escalator, and have sharp vision and hearing. It is a fascinating look into the HQ for CNN. Well worth a visit.

Went with a friend who has lived in Atlanta 20+ years who has never gone. Was cool to see the behind-the-scenes ( of course woyld've been cooler if we saw a personality...)

Great expectations builds up as you ascent the longest free standing escalator that leads you from CNN lobby to start the tour. Everything after that is downhill.

Like CNN, don't like CNN, it's still worth going to see. Good tours take you behind the scenes of the shows and the productions. Informative tour. Located around a massive food court that covers almost any quick eating desires. For the cost, way worth experiencing.

We find tours of operating businesses always interesting, which this one was. By necessity most of the tour's "views" were from behind glass windows, but we did get to see how things were done and did see a couple of the sets operating on the air. A hands on demo of the 'Green Board" in a mock studio was a... More

Cmon, CNN is Atlanta's baby. This place is an awesome attraction and you must take your people on the certified tour. You'll really impress your guests with this activity.
