Can’t get enough of Bob, Stuart, and Kevin? Well, Universal Studios in Orlando just announced a brand new Minions attraction for 2023. Next summer, kids, teens, and adults can engage in Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast. Kind of similar to the Men In Black interactive ride, this blaster game is fun for the whole family. Put your villainous skills to the test as you compete against each other in a bid to join the ranks of the franchise’s most infamous supervillains.
According to a press release from Universal, Villain-Con Minion Blast is a one-of-a-kind immersive encounter. The attraction combines innovative screen technology, state-of-the-art gaming interactivity and elaborate physical sets. The world-class attraction transports guests to Villain-Con – the biggest criminal convention on the planet. Riders will 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 will grab an interactive blaster and step onto a motion-based pathway to put their skills to the test. Glide and navigate through various scenes where you’ll earn points by blasting items and cause as much mayhem as possible.
Villain-Con Minion Blast will open in Summer 2023 within the new Minion Land on Illumination Ave at Universal Studios in Orlando. This ride is replacing the beloved Shrek 4-D adventure. The new area of the park is going to be Minion central. It will also feature the fan-favorite Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction, a new Minion Café and other surprises inspired by Minions.
