Even more Minions are on the way to Universal Orlando
It will soon be time to turn up the sunshine and get despicable at Villain-Con Minion Blast, an all-new, all-Minions attraction coming to Universal Orlando next summer.
This newly announced attraction is the herald of a Minion Land opening within the theme park, and Universal on Thursday spilled the sinister beans on the looming Minion takeover.
Villain-Con Minion Blast is an interactive blaster game set in the middle of the biggest criminal convention on the planet — Villain-Con. Guests will battle and blast it out to prove themselves worthy to join the Vicious 6, the super-villain league featured in Minions: The Rise of Gru
, the most recent release in the Minions franchise.
"Villain-Con Minion Blast 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," Universal said in a press release.
Guests will be able to grab a blaster and step on to a "motion-based pathway" in order to cause as much chaos as possible. Villain-Con Minion Blast will occupy the space that was previously held by Shrek 4D, a sit-down theatre experience.
The Minion Blast attraction will be part of a new Minion Land taking over Illumination Ave., a main street near the entrance to Universal Studios that is already home to the ride Despicable Me Minion Mayhem
A Minion Café is also in the works for this new themed area, with a few other surprises to come.
More details will be announced leading up the Minion Land opening on the Universal Orlando website
