We took our granddaughter as she had been here before with my wife. She loves the indoor slide and the play area. We had a little snack and went into the gift/book store as well. For me it was quite and peaceful, which I needed more than I even knew. Go on line to the website and lay out your... More

As usual, my family toured a place that might take two hours and spent over four. We went to Whits End, we went down the slide a gazillion times. We were killing time for a little while as we had to wait for a time slot for the radio program. But eventually, my kids got to make their own Adventures... More

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.

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
