When my kids were little this was one of our favorite places to go for a day's outing. We could spend a whole day there playing and even eat lunch there at the soda shop. Bittersweet that my kids are growing up and its just not as entertaining for them as it used to be. We just send some friends... More

We visited here on a family vacation. The kids enjoyed themselves. Certainly can't beat the price as it was 100% free. There is even a bookstore to shop through.

My thirteen year old son and I stopped here thinking we would spend a half hour or so and ended up being here for close to two hours. We both really enjoyed all they had to offer.

For all of you Adventures In Odyssey lovers, you have to stop here for a visit! Get raspberry ripple ice cream and stop by the bookstore!

The kids had an amazing time playing here for hours! All the activities are free, the playground is awesome and the atmosphere is good, clean fun. They have a small eatery downstairs to grab a bite to eat which we thought was priced well. If you need something to do on a rainy or cold day, this is the place... More

I really enjoyed visiting Focus on the Family. I had no idea it is such a great place to bring the whole family. The lower level is amazing! It reminded me of the Rainforest Café. It would be a great place for toddlers or young children to play or have a small meal. It also has a wonderful gift shop.... More

This was a highlight of our trip to Colorado Springs! We are long time Adventures in Odyssey fans, and we were thrilled to visit Wit's End, slide down the giant slide, and enjoy ice cream from the soda shop. They have a phenomenal book shop and we even got to hear Jim Daly tape a show. Pleasant, informative staff.

Young kids will love the indoor playground experience. Christian adults will love the bookstore. You can't beat the price to look around and play a while. Free is good, and this is a great option for rainy days with young ones. Do go in knowing that Focus on the Family is an extremely conservative Christian organization, and all of their... More

I LOVED THIS PLACE! The bookstore is amazing and has lots of childrens books and CD's. We went there twice! The rest of the Welcome Center was awesome as well. The downstairs is geared for littler kids but we all enjoyed it. Ice Cream parlor, a 3-story slide, a play ground of sorts...it was awesome! The deck to look at... More
