Universal Studios Florida is not only getting a new first-of-its-kind attraction with Villain-Con Minion Blast, it’s going to be part of a new Minion Land with a new Minions Café too.
We knew something Minion-themed was replacing the former Shrek 4-D attraction because Minions are featured all over the construction walls. Now we have the details.
Next summer, Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast interactive, shooting game attraction 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.
Villain-Con Minion Blast will combine screen technology, gaming interactivity, and elaborate physical sets to create a game-based adventure where guests will face familiar villains and tons of mischievous Minions from Illumination’s films in a whole new way.
Guests will be going to Villain-Con – the biggest criminal convention on the planet (taking place in Orlando of course) – to take part in an 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 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.
Villain-Con Minion Blast will open in summer 2023 at Universal Studios Florida within the new Minion Land on Illumination Ave. This new area will also feature the current Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction, a new Minion Café and other fun inspired by the Minions and friends.
More details about Minion Blast and Minion Land will be revealed in the months ahead. For more information about Universal Orlando Resort, visit universalorlando.com.
