What would this museum be like if you didn’t get in on some secret action? You will find yourself at the doors to the Vault of the Secret Formula. Over the years, many soda manufacturers have tried to duplicate the taste of Coca-Cola, but none know that exact formula to make it.

You can experience the Virtual Taste Maker, the Bubble-izer, The Triangle Room, Secure Train Car, and Bank Vault.
