Speaking of....parking at Six Flags is ludicrous. $25? Hahahahahaha!!!!

I don't care because I have a season pass that covers parking. But just to help others out, what's a safe nearby place to park where you can Uber to Six Flags?

Yes and it feels way higher when you are up top than it looks. I won’t ride again. Lol

It's at least a million times better than the stupid Coke museum. And so is Fernbank.

I am a Coke Zero lover/addict and appreciate everything that company has done for the city, but their weaksauce little museum is the definition of a tourist trap/scam/ripoff.

The aquarium is great if you enjoy watching fish swim around.

I rode it about 5 years ago when it first opened. It's pretty cool, but I remember feeling like it was way overpriced. It's worth doing at least once but definitely a touristy type thing.

I am so glad I am not the only one that is not a fan of the Coke museum.

Although I feel like I am in the minority, I really am not a fan of the Aquarium. It costs an arm and a leg and every time I've tried to go it's been packed with people. I've tried to take people there a couple of times and the wait times were insane. I prefer the one in Chattanooga much more.

I haven't been to the Coke museum but have heard good things. I went to the aquarium and was quite disappointed. There was so much hype and so...huge let down. I know people who went to the one in Tennessee and they said that Tennessee's by far trumps Atlanta's. I am curious about the Coke factory but I dunno...caffeine isn't so nice after the effects wear off.
