The tour is pretty informative. It's a little canned, but covers the core of the company. Kids area is a must- but super chaotic! Bookstore is great! No sales usually- but a great place to make a wish list. The tours do not run all day long. We were late for one of the only 2 that day, which made... More

Wanted to see more about Focus on the Family. Their history and their story. The tour was wonderful. The kids play area was amazing. From the little drama stage to the 3 story slide. I enjoyed the bookstore and the special deals. I have a better understanding about their radio program and their magazine publications. This is a place worth... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to focus on the family. The area they have for children to play is incredible. My son loved the 3 story slide. Well worth the visit.

Cute place to bring children. A three story side for children who meet the height requirement, an ice cream parlor, a climbing and discovery area and a "town" to explore. The bookstore and gift shop are an added treasure.

The 3 story slide is amazing! My kids loved the slide and all the other things in the children's play area including a puppet show and a stage where they could dress up as characters from Adventures in Odyssey. We had lunch at the soda shop which was really cute. And I enjoyed reading the historical information upstairs. Very nice... More

Some parts of this place reminded me of Disney World. Great giant indoor slide. Very, very reasonably priced restaurant. So many great things for the kids to do. Wouldn't recommend for any child over 10 unless they really, really like scavenger hunts.

We stopped here while on a family trip in the area. The kids had a blast in the (FREE!) kids area themed along with the Adventures in Odyssey series. They particularly enjoyed the 3 story swirl slide. The bookstore offers great resources, too. We will definitely be back the next time we're in the area!
