Located in downtown Atlanta, the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame is the ultimate fan’s experience! You begin your experience walking through an entry tunnel that leads to the Quad. Here you will create your All- Access Pass at a Kiosk where you select the school you want to represent. This allows the experience to be tailored exactly to your interests. Once you select your team, the college’s football helmet will light up and stay lit throughout your experience. If you look at the wall any helmet that is lit up blue means that someone in the building is a fan.
HALL OF FAME
After marveling at the enormous wall of over 800 helmets, I recommend beginning your experience on the 3rd floor. This floor is home to the actual Hall of Fame. One of the coolest parts of this exhibit was the large touchscreen computer that reads your badge. Now, this is not just an ordinary computer. You literally move it, and the timeline moves along with you. Think of it like your touchscreen tablet. When you slide your finger across it, you see more. With this computer screen, you are standing and twisting the computer to see even more of the timeline. Rediscover your team’s Hall of Fame players through bios, pictures, videos, and more.
The second floor immerses you in technology and your favorite college football team. This is where the heart of the experience lives, in my opinion! We had such a blast playing around with everything in this section!
One exhibit that stands out to me is the field perspective immersion. Basically, you get the opportunity to feel as if you are standing right on the field of your favorite team. You get to experience their entrance to the field and other traditions unique to the team. I loved being able to scan 360 degrees! Talk about being brought up close and personal!
Moving through the exhibit, there are so many great interactive features that you will NOT want to miss.
Want to become a sportscaster? Put on a headset, pick out the play, and call the shots! The best part, it can be played back for all to hear and enjoy! I can tell you this, it is not as easy as it seems when hearing them. This exhibit certainly made me appreciate them even more for the gifts they bring to game day.
My boys really enjoyed the interactive ESPN College GameDay set with Rece Davis and Desmond Howard, Step in front of a green screen where you ARE the guest. You get to make the predictions! Who knows? You might find your mascot has come to join you!
Coca-Cola Fans’ Game Day
In the Coca-Cola Fame Day gallery, fans get hands-on with the revelry of tailgating, mascots, cheerleaders and storied traditions passed down through generations. We loved singing the karaoke fight songs and showing off school pride with the digital face painting kiosk.
AT&T Game Time
Immerse yourself in the gallery that captures the excitement that just can’t be contained on the field. This is the section that puts YOU right in the middle of the action.
Game Day Theater
This 4K feature film surrounds your senses and brings you right into the heart-pounding action of college football!
The Playing Field
Another fun area is the playing field. Children of ALL ages will enjoy spending time here. Go through Touchstone Tunnel and learn about teams that touchstones before hitting the playing field. Upon leaving the tunnel, you enter into the playing field, an indoor half-football field. Here you can try to kick a field goal on their regulation goal post. Perhaps you want to try running through some drills and catching the football. Here every fan can experience what it feels like to be apart of the team. My boys could have stayed on the playing field for hours.
As I stated earlier when we left we were so ready to cheer on our favorite team! Although our team has not had many successful seasons, we can relive our experiences celebrating their historic moments. The badge that you were given is your All Access Pass. You will be sent a link to your experiences at the museum to relive and share on social media. The best part is that this is FREE!
So if you are looking for a great place to take dad this Father’s Day or just want to celebrate your favorite college football team, you have got to check out the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame. It is an attraction in Atlanta that simply can’t be missed!
