The kids LOVE the indoor 3 story spiral slide. There is plenty of indoor climbing equipment, multiple activity rooms, super family friendly, a veggie tales "cave", a bit of history, a theatre with stage and a projection onto a t.v. screen of the performance, costumes, puppets. It was pretty fantastic and well executed!

We live 3 hours from Co Springs, but nearly every time we visit we go to the Focus on the Family Visitor Center. The kids love the giant play area down stairs. There 's absolutely no obligation to buy anything at the bookstore, no admission is charged, and the volunteers are so friendly. It makes a great activity on snowy... More

As fans of Focus on the Family, this was something we had hoped to do someday. The kids area is great, the bookstore is huge, and the people were sooooo nice! We really enjoyed it. The 2 story slide was closed - probably because of the cold weather the day we were there, and if you want to eat at... More

We had my son's 4th birthday in one of the birthday rooms in Whit's End. Adorable decor in the Fire Station Room. There was so much to do in the Whit's End play area that no child was bored. We had pizza delivered and brought our own snacks and drinks. The little cafe is convenient but a bit pricey. My... More

Focus on the Family is such a wonderful organization. The head quarters here in Colorado Springs is a fabulous place. There's something for everyone in the family. A bookstore and an adventure in Odessy

I went here with my sister and we had fun, mainly at the soda shoppe and browsing the bookstore. This place is so great for kids because they have toys to play on, a huge slide, a plane, and so much more. And it's all free!
