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....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...More

It is a nice place to visit, moreover if you have kids. They have a huge place indoor for them to explore and play, nice for winter times when you don't know where to go with your kids withour spending money...
