So this Welcome Center is really cool for kids. The walls are painted with trees, the rooms are themed, there is a playground center and super slide inside. There is a snack bar area, a reading theater, a dress up area and stage....Kid friendly personified. Going there for the first time was really awesome. My kids played for hours. There... More

Focus on the Family pulled out all the stops with their welcome center. It is highly informative about what Focus is all about with interactive areas explaining their global vision and even a movie theater where a movie is looped throughout the day. There is a huge play area on the lower level for the kids. Our grandchildren loved the... More

Kids enjoyed Whit's End play area and soda fountain. Best chocolate shakes! Very friendly people and beautiful setting. They have the high power binoculars on their terrace so you can see the beautiful mountains and scenery surrounding their campus.

Great place to get the kids out, especially when it's not nice outdoors. Learning, playing and using their imaginations. Really wonderful book store as well.

The Focus on the Family Welcome Center has several parts to it. First is a museum that tells the history of the organization and its various ministries. There are several exhibits and brief films. It was okay, but nothing exceptional. There is also a huge bookstore that is quite impressive. There is a soda shop that we planned to visit,... More

This was my second visit the earlier was many years before. This is a wonderful and fun place to spend time. It has fun for the entire family young and old. A three story slide, and old fashioned soda shop, an area to dress up and get on stage. This is absolutely a must. You won't be disappointed.

We had a blast and plan on going back again and again. They are Friendly and the place is clean. The pizza is so good. Crust is the best part. Lots to do for kids. They were wore out.

We'd been listening to the Adventures in Odyssey CD's for weeks in anticipation of our visit, and we weren't disappointed! This was a fun stop for our whole family and a nice respite from the summer afternoon heat. We enjoyed ice cream at Whit's End, and the kids had a blast on the slide and exploring the children's area in... More

These days, security is everywhere, including Focus on the Family. At the Welcome Center, however, young women who were MADE for that job, warmly greeted our party of three (without any children). We did a quick online registration, got our name tags and off we went. Honestly, if I lived in CO Springs with young children, I'd be there every... More
