One thing that keeps fans returning to theme parks is expansion and new attractions! People especially love when theme parks offer something new and different that they can’t experience anywhere else. Disney World’s Flight of Passage and Guardians of the Galaxy attractions come to mind.

Now, Universal Orlando is ALL IN when it comes to offering innovations and new experiences including the new Epic Universe park that is under construction now. In fact, one such attraction has been added to the new Illumination’s Minion Land expansion. The expansion is entirely based on the popular Despicable Me franchise. Not only can fans enjoy the delightful antics of Gru and his family and the lovable Minions, but they can also get their fill of villainy!

In addition to the existing Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction, Universal has added a NEW attraction called Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast. New details just emerged for the attraction, which is said to be a fully-immersive, game-based attraction where visitors grab a handheld blaster to earn points as a motion-based walkway propels them to each part of the challenge.

Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast has introduced a never before seen experience to the theme park world. It sounds like so much fun! You can read all of the details right over here.
