World of Coca-Cola reopens after bomb threat

The World of Coca-Cola reopened after authorities gave the “all-clear” after a bomb threat at the downtown Atlanta attraction, officials said Tuesday.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we evacuated the facility while law enforcement agencies investigated the validity of the claims,” World of Coca-Cola said in a statement. “Law enforcement agencies have given the all clear, and World of Coca-Cola is in the process of reopening to guests.”

At one point, police dogs searched the building on Baker Street, Atlanta police Officer Lisa Bender said. She confirmed the threat was called in.

Someone on the scene told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution they were moved across the street to Centennial Olympic Park during the evacuation.
