I recently did a day trip to Atlanta. It'll take you longer to leave airport. You need two trains to get to car rental. We did aquarium and coke tour. IMHO coke was a waste of time. Basically you pay $17 each to get advertised to. The only cool part was the tasting room where you can taste almost every variety of coke product. I wasn't comfortable drinking anything from other countries due to kashrus so it wasn't as exciting for me. We still left extremely nauseous and didn't enjoy our dinner as (Fuego Mundo) much as we could have.
Although I have not been to Coke since they remodeled, I would agree with your assessment.  However, someoone who enjoys nostalgic memorabilia may enjoy the trip.

There is a kosher restaurant in Sandy Springs that has one.  We used it when we were there in the summer.

Cool.  Though there's no need to find a kosher restaurant as they'll all good to go according to the OU.
There's even an app to find the machine.

+5
That's almost the exact same machine as in the factory tour. Though, all the ones near me are in non-kosher restaurants which is a little awkward to walk into.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

I vaguely remember seeing something from the ou, but I forgot why they said it would be ok.  Isn't the tubing, or at least the spout somewhat shared?

The old Coke museum had a neat room, where the coke would shpritz from a machine around 20 feet away, in to your cup.  Best part of the place, not sure why they got rid of it.

Planing a very quick day trip to Atlanta.
Here's a tentative itinerary
10:55- arrive
11:30- get car and leave airport
12:15- broadway cafe (restaurant)
1:15- Leave to CNN studio tour
3:00- coca cola tour
4:15 Chei Peking (in kroger)
5:00- millenium park? (what is it? I can't find any info about it online but someone upthread recommended it)
6:00 Fuego Mundo
8:00 chill at the hotel (Sheraton atlanta)

Flight is at 7:15 am the next day

Why pick up chai Peking if you're going to Fuego?  Itll be out of your way.

As to why he needs both, IDK. 

But, it is not so much out of the way.  To get to FM from downtown (without taking back roads), you would take 85 to 285.  He can get off on N Druid Hills and travel approx 2 miles to Kroger.  Then he can take N Druid to Roxboro to Roswell (prob better this way with rush hour on 85 and 285).  IMO, total of 15 minutes out of the way (not including if they have to wait for the food at Chai Peking).

Save your appetite for Fuego ;)
If you want a snack....get ardens garden smoothies (locations throughout ATL) or brusters.

Fuego Mundo for food.

Carriage ride around downtown.

Peachtree Plaza rotating top.

Braves playing?

Stone Mountain laser show.

Fuego is definitely in the plans.

I'm alone so I'm not sure a carriage ride is in the plans.

Braves are playing the Red Sox.  Are there an great seats to be had cheap? I'm not a huge sports fan..  so I'm not sure about that.

Peachtree plaza and laser show sound like they'd be more enjoyable with someone.... so I'd probably skip those.

Anybody want to meet up at Fuego for dinner and mini DO?
