We were so excited to visit Focus on the Family, being partners of the ministry for over 10 years now. We were so happy to tour the facility and everyone we met was very nice. The time we spent at Whit's end Soda Shoppe was fun as well as the activities and the humongous slide! Learning about the beginning of... More

The entire basement of the Welcome Center has been converted into a themed play area for the kids basically around the Focus on the Family 'Adventures in Odyssey'. There are numerous rooms with 2 being for birthday... More

My kids loved this place when they were younger. It was their favorite place to go each time we visited Colorado Springs. They could have spent all day there. Great slide, fun scavenger searches, and playrooms galore!

I dropped in for a quick visit and really enjoyed it. Terrific play areas for kids, a large bookstore, and nice views of the mountains. This place is much larger than I thought it would be.

This place was very good for young children. The big slide is the best part. My kids enjoyed dressing up and acting on the stage too. It is available for free party room use, several of our friends took advantage of this! Huge blessing!

Focus On The Family has been around for quite some time. We got a lot of hints and tips from them that helped us to raise our family. Now we have a granddaughter and are getting ideas and materials that will help us be a positive influence in her life as well. They have a great bookstore! They offer materials... More

A great opportunity to learn about the history and future plans of this organization. Very kid friendly, with a fun play area complete with spiral slide. The bookstore is well stocked, and the staff is friendly.

My kids like this place. They have a 3 story slide the kids love and a play area down stairs. There are places where you can eat. Also they have a radio room that you can participate in. Also a costume area with stage. It's nice and free. Check it out.

I'd say Focus on the Family is for Christians, fans of AIO (Adventures in Osyssey), fans of James Dobson and those who aren't easily offended. My review pertains to only the Odyssey section. As a mother of 3, ages ranging from 1-4, it was a perfect stop for me. My favorites? A toddler room decorated as a sleep a way... More

We have loved listening to their broadcast for years so it was great to meet the people behind the voices. We sat in on a taping. The bookstore and museum are filled with great items.
