Great place to visit. Have some fun downstairs in Whit's End ice cream shop. Spend some time and money on resources to help your marriage and raise your kids in the world we live in. Very comfortable, Christian atmosphere.

This place is absolute fun for the kiddos. They have so many things for them to get into. My kids, 4 and 11, thought the indoor slide was the best. They also have stage and dressing area where the kids can put on a play while watching themselves on tv. Another thing they enjoyed was the opportunity to get to... More

God bless these folks for making such a difference in the lives of families for decades. make sure you stop in when you're in the area. Say a prayer for this most important God-glorifying ministry.

Visit the spot and then visit the garden of the gods to decide if you believe in science or think everything is 6000 years old.

This is a fun little place to get the kids out of the house. For the record, this is a Christian center, so I don't want anyone to be surprised by that. As a Christian it doesn't bother me (naturally); the place is fun and has plenty for little kids to do. They can watch some little videos, play on... More

My husband and I spent a whole morning at the Focus On The Family Welcome Center and Administrative Building and enjoyed our time there immensely. This is a beautiful campus, and the people who work there are extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. We took a tour of the facility and our tour guide's love for her work shone through loud...

It was fun to be in Whit's End after hearing it referenced in Adventures in Odyssey all these years. And, the ice cream was half what we paid in Colorado Springs!

Look around and see some of the history of FOTF then let the kids go down the 3 story slide and play in the kids play area. This is free and only 2 hours or less here. Great time filler between attractions in COS.

FOTF's Welcome Center doesn't sound at all like what it actually is: a great, free attraction for families with children. The entire lower floor is dedicated to kids play, themed around the Adventures in Odyssey stories and characters. Highlights are a two-story indoor/outdoor slide, soda shop, and Chronicles of Narnia room. Upstairs is a missions area and huge bookstore. We... More

If you're a fan of Focus on the Family and its various ministries, then you will appreciate this free experience. There are wonderful timelines and photos on display. There is ample historical information displayed in creative and beautiful ways. Plenty to see and do!
