Universal Orlando Unveils New Minion Inspired Attraction for 2023

Universal Orlando Resort is partnering with animation studio Illumination Entertainment to bring a new attraction for 2023 inspired by the blockbuster Minions franchise. Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast, set to debut in summer 2023, is an interactive blaster game experience that puts guests’ villainous skills to the test competing against each other to join the ranks of the franchise’s most infamous supervillains.

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 unique experience. The new attraction transports guests to Villain-Con—the biggest criminal convention on the planet—to take part in a competition to become the newest member of The Vicious 6, a notorious group of supervillains from the hit film “Minions: The Rise of Gru.” Participants will wind and glide through various scenes where they earn points by blasting a variety of items and causing as much mayhem and destruction as possible.

Villain-Con Minion Blast will open in summer 2023 at Universal Studios Florida within the new Minion Land on Illumination Avenue. This new area will also feature the fan-favorite Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction, a new Minion Cafe and other surprises inspired by Illumination's franchises. More details on the attraction will be released in the upcoming months.
