We came here specifically to have the Wodfamchocsods (World famous chocolate sodas.) Reasonably priced and delicious, my children and I enjoyed their chocolatey, cold yumminess. The atmosphere was cute, kid friendly and whimsical. The girl at the counter was pleasant and friendly.

This is a great old-time soda fountain/ice cream parlor in the kids area of the Focus On The Family campus. It is a great way to cap off a trip to this awesome attraction. The kids love it!
