New Minion Land coming to Universal Orlando
Universal Orlando Resort has announced a new “Minions” attraction is coming to the theme park in the summer of 2023.
Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast, inspired by the “Minions” movie franchise, is an interactive blaster game.
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.
Guests who are up for the challenge will grab an interactive blaster and step onto a “motion-based pathway” — essentially a moving walkway like the ones park-goers use to board Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.
They’ll wind through various scenes and earn points by blasting different items and causing as much chaos and destruction as possible.
The world-class attraction transports 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,” a release states.
The attraction will open within the new Minion Land, an entire area inspired by the movies. It will replace Shrek 4-D, which closed earlier this year. Also, a Minions Café is replacing the site of the former Monsters Cafe!
Minion Land will also include “other surprises” inspired by characters from Illumination franchises.
