It is no secret that Universal Orlando is working hard to update its theme parks. In the past years, we have seen the opening of smash hit coasters such as Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure as well as VelociCoaster.

We also know that Universal Orlando is opening a fourth gate called Epic Universe. This park will include a land dedicated to Super Nintendo. The park is on track to open in the summer of 2025.

In the meantime, there is a new themed land coming to Universal Orlando! Guests won’t have to wait long to enjoy it.

The Despicable Me Franchise popularized the delightfully zany Minion characters. People of all ages love Kevin and Bob and other yellow pals.

The Minion presence is about to expand in Universal Studios Orlando. Now, instead of having one ride, there will be an entire land devoted to Minions!

Universal Orlando took to social media to bring us the details. The land will completely take over Illumination Avenue, including the Shrek attraction that was recently shuttered. You can read about its closure here. Universal announced another string of closures here.

The current attraction Despicable Me Minion Mania will be incorporated into the land. However, a new Minion Cafe will join it! There will also be an exciting new attraction!

The new attraction is called Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast. The “blaster game experience” will join the new Minion Land and will be located at the former spot of Shrek 4-D at Universal Studios in Orlando.

It is described as an attraction where “Guests will grab an interactive blaster and step onto a motion-based pathway to put their skills to the test.” It sounds like it could very well be something we have not seen before in Orlando Theme Parks.

When is it coming?

Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast is set to open in the summer of 2023! Universal Orlando is certainly setting itself up to be relevant.
