BREVARD COUNTY There will soon be a new source for a wide variety of entertainment in Central Brevard as the Route 7 Adrenaline Warehouse, located just north of Pineda Causeway off U.S. 1, is set to open to the public in late October.

Route 7 is located in a portion of a building formerly owned by Florida Today. The area where the business is located was formerly a warehouse responsible for printing newspapers.

Now, the facility is home to a wide variety of attractions including go-karts, e-sports, laser tag, mini bowling, a ropes course, an arcade, a virtual-reality “XD Dark Ride,” and a “ninja warriors” course.

“There’s no admission fee,” said owner Kevin Saltsman. “So you can come in, see all the different attractions, decide what you would like to purchase to participate in If you want to just come and do go-karts, you can buy a go-kart ticket. If you want to come and do e-sports, it’s by the hour.”

Mr. Saltsman also noted there would be packages available for purchase that would be of the “Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5,” variety that enable to patrons the opportunity to enjoy multiple attractions.

Additionally, the warehouse includes a dining area that features fare including pizza, burgers, wraps, soups, salads and appetizers. There’s also a sports bar offering beer and wine as well.

The facility also has rooms set aside that can be reserved for parties and groups.

The process by which Route 7 came to be took about six years, according to co-owner Lori Saltsman and the reality of the idea coming to life is something that unsurprisingly has the both Saltsmans very enthused.

“It always goes back to this is what keeps our focus here, what our vision is, to be Brevard County’s premier entertainment destination providing a fun, safe one-of-a-kind experience along with excellent guest service,” said Mrs. Saltsman. “….We take that very seriously.”

The company’s central locationin Melbourne is something Mr. Saltsman believes will help as well.

“It’s easy to get to with Pineda (Causeway) extension now all the way out to the Interstate (I-95), very accessible to the entire county,” said Mr. Saltsman.

Route 7 will be open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m-midnight on Friday, 10 a.m.-midnight on Saturday and Sunday from noon-9 p.m., according to Mrs. Saltsman.

The company will employ approximately 60 employees, Mr. Saltsman indicated, and they are still seeking applicants to fill positions.
