Very boring tour, not worth of your time and money. Would not pay a penny, if I knew in advance. Pictures are not allowed, so that they try to sell you expensive ones. You just look few studios from outside, nothing interesting to see.
This CNN studio tour packs a ton of fun into less than an hour, so it’s easy to fit it into your travel schedule and leaves you with plenty of time to explore other areas of Atlanta, too. With special behind-the-scenes information, such as which special effects are used when, get the most out of visiting CNN Center with this guided tour.
This CNN Atlanta guided tour meets at CNN Center. Take your paper voucher to the tour office for a timed studio tour admission ticket.
On your tour, you’ll see how CNN news broadcasts are made. You’ll visit the main studios and newsrooms for CNN’s news channels. As your guide leads you through the building, you’ll learn about founder Ted Turner and how he created the first 24-hour news network in the US.
You’ll also take a look at a special-effects studio for creating weather maps and other on-air graphics. Learn how the video, sound, and special effects happen.
Then, you can play news anchor. Sit at a CNN anchor desk, and pose with a microphone for a souvenir photo.
Your tour ends where it started, and from there you can explore the rest of the CNN Center or visit other downtown Atlanta attractions.
