Had a great time visiting Focus on the Family. If you have kids you really want to go, the basement area is like an amusement park for them, everyone was having a fantastic time

Love the bookstore and could stay there for hours. Granddaughter spent lots of time in the kids area. A must stop if you are in the area. Beautiful setting and grounds. Friendly, kind people. Take time for lunch there or ice cream.

I was at Focus on the Family for a conference, and thoroughly enjoyed it! The campus is beautiful, the people in the welcome center were helpful and friendly, and I loved the bookstore! There are play areas for children, including a 3 story slide, which is so much fun (even for adults!) Would definitely come back anytime I was in... More

This is a wonderful, free (unless you visit the bookstore and then you're on your own!) place to bring young children--play, slide, watch movies, read. Great place for birthday parties! Fun snack bar type restaurant (perfect for after-play treats). A great place to visit and to bring visiting family with small children. Older children aren't going to find much to... More

We liked it. Our kids liked it. We liked the family atmosphere, and the kids loved the slide. They close the slide if it's lightening, but it's a fun indoor free place with some food if you need a little spot to go during the rain.

We had been here before many years ago before kids and wanted to see how things have changed over the years. It was a great facility with nice touches for little kids and adults. The teens however, were bored. There was nothing for them to do other than wifi. We spent about an hour here. Some of us liked it... More

Our grandkids, ages 5,3, and 2 really enjoyed their time at Oddessy and Whit's End. The staff is very helpful and the whole setting is very safe and enjoyable for the family. Our 5 year old enjoyed the "Scavenger Hunt" and older kids can even be part of a "mock" radio presentation. It was a great Christian family experience.

Great place to take the kiddos, and it's free!!! Bookstore is amazing! The kids loved the downstairs play area. Colorado Springs is definitely blessed to have a place like this available.
