CNN Atlanta Studio Tour
US$ 16.34
Overview

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.

What to Expect

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.

Don't waste your money

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not waste your money. They take you through hallways, stairs and corridors and show how the green screen works and a birds-eye view of the newsroom, No studios, waste of $15 and 45 minutes. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.

CNN tour studio

Is a great way to get to know how CNN works. Shame is a too short, and pictures are allow, also I felt the pictures on place were to expesive $40 for only 3 pictures. But overall is a must see in Atlanta.

Nope. There is a desk you can walk up to and purchase tickets. They will tell you when the next tour is, and ask if that’s OK.
