The Minions are taking over Universal Studios Orlando with a brand new land and attraction!

The new attraction will of course be a lot of fun for the whole family of all different ages, and is being developed in partnership between Universal’s creative team and the filmmakers at Illumination, the studio behind the Despicable Me/Minions franchise.

Villain-Con Minion Blast is an interactive, blaster game experience will invite guests to put their villainous skills to the test as they compete against each other in a bid to join the ranks of the franchise’s most infamous supervillains.

According to Universal Studios Orlando, the attraction “combines innovative screen technology, state-of-the-art gaming interactivity and elaborate physical sets to create a one-of-a-kind, game-based adventure where guests encounter immersive environments, nefarious villains and tons of mischievous Minions from Illumination’s films in a whole new way.”

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 most recent hit film, Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Guests 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. It’s a unique, mischief-filled experience that’s so much fun, it’s a crime.”

The brand new attraction, Villain-Con Minion Blast, will open in the summer of 2023 in the new Minion Land on Illumination Ave at Universal Studios Orlando.

The Minion Land is also home to the existing Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction, a new Minion Café and other surprises inspired by popular characters from Illumination’s blockbuster franchises.

A new land is also opening at Universal Studios Hollywood in California – Super Nintendo World!
