There’s a new Minions attraction set to take center stage at Universal Orlando Resort in the summer of 2023.

This new attraction, Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast, will open at Universal Studios Florida within the new Minion Land on Illumination Ave. The new area will also feature the Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction, a new Minion Cafe and other goodies inspired by popular characters from Illumination’s blockbuster franchises.

Developed in partnership between Universal’s award-winning creative team and the filmmakers from Illumination, this interactive, blaster game experience combines innovative screen technology, state-of-the-art gaming interactivity and elaborate physical sets to create a game-based adventure where guests encounter immersive environments, nefarious villains and tons of mischievous Minions from Illumination’s films.

Get Ready for New Minions Attraction, Coming Summer 2023

The attraction will transport guests to Villain-Con—the biggest criminal convention on the planet—to take part in an epic competition to see if they have what it takes to become the newest member of The Vicious 6, a notorious group of supervillains from the hit film, “Minions: The Rise of Gru.” Guests who are up for the challenge will grab an interactive blaster and step onto a motion-based pathway to put their skills to the test. They’ll wind and glide through various scenes where they earn points by blasting a variety of items and causing as much mayhem and destruction as possible.

More details about Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast and Minion Land will be revealed in the months ahead.

And…Universal’s Great Movie Escape is now officially open at Universal CityWalk. The attraction is comprised of two distinct, cinematic escape adventures inspired by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s iconic Jurassic World and Back to the Future films—each boasting eight immersive environments that feature state-of-the-art challenges, detailed sets and captivating storylines.
