Took our Grandson to the Odysess Town and had the greatest time exploring the different rooms and displays. He enjoyed the slide and the scavenger hunt.

The kids (ages 6-14) loved this place. And smoothies in their neat restaurant. My husband and I would have loved a behind-the- scenes tour of the main building though, but it's not offered.

Mean staff, they don't care for minorities and aren't afraid to show it. Lots of judgement. I would not suggest going there unless you are white. Don't accept any food or beverage from staff. Don't bring kids who may be perceived as effeminate or bi-racial. Probably best to stay away all together.

The inside playground on the bottom floor of the Welcome Center is magnificent!! I went twice. First taking my 2 year old ggirl and she ran from exciting exhibit and play areas until she dropped!! Second time a few days later, four more kids aged 5-12 accompanied us and each had a fantastic time. There are veggie tales, and a... More

We recently moved to the Springs and one of the first places we wanted to visit was Focus on the Family. They have a really nice welcome center with information. The bookstore has a really nice atmosphere and has many great resources. The best place for kids is in the lower level, which is based on Adventures in Odyssey. There... More

There was a lot more here than I anticipated. There is a whole area dedicated for the kids. This is a place I actually take my little kids to have fun. They like playing here more than at the McDonald's Play Place

A FREE place to take the kids to let loose some energy after a road trip, Focus on the Family provides Whit's End on the lower level. Upper level is a bookstore with Christian books and resources. Truly, a blessing for families.

We had a great time at Focus and spent much longer time there than we've planned. My kids must have gone down A-Bend-A-Go, the three-story high spiral slide ten times each! We also went on a guided tour at the Administration building. The tours are held twice daily (10 am and 2 pm). The highlight of our visit was recording... More
