We are locals and our preschool age kids love coming to the facility. They play for a couple of hours and on a lucky day go to the Soda Shoppe for a yummy ice cream. Wonderful ministry and we frequently purchase books or Odyssey tapes from the bookstore.

What a treat is was to visit the welcome center. They are truly focused on the family. The first floor is dedicated to the mission and vision. The second floor is an Adventure in Odyssey play-land equipped with a grand slide to the entrance. Great place for a family play date.

Super cool kids area and giant slide. The play area is free but it's fun to bring some money for ice cream!

We love going to Focus on the Family and playing at Whit's End. Whether or not your kids have ever listened to Adventures in Oddessy they will have a great time playing and exploring Whit's End. Activities range from watching movies, to the 3 story slide, to treasure hunts and play areas for many age ranges. And if you get... More

Basically an indoor playground with a Colorado Mountain Desert theme. Places to run, climb and a huge slide. Interactive areas and areas for toddlers. Great spot for an hour or two of entertainment especially if it's cold outside. Need to register to enter. 2 year olds to maybe 10 year olds.

I was so looking forward to seeing Focus on the Family when I moved here. It was such a disappointment. The have a book store and not much else that you can go in to.

The displays are very interesting on the history of the organization. The downstairs is where it's at for the kids! There is a large play structure, a three story? slide that is partly outside(brrr), that this... More

Visiting Colorado a friend referred this place since we would be bringing our two year old and he had a blast! It is definitely a fun environment for little kids! Friendly staff and they also have a cute soda shoppe!

Last October my husband and I with our two youngest, along with my parents, made a trip to Colorado Springs - My mom & I are avid readers, always have been - so this was a MUST for us. I'd read up on all it had to offer and was excited to visit. Definitely one of our memorable events...the kids... More
