Universal Studios Florida recently closed Shrek 4-D, and it was also just announced last month that the Woody Woodpecker KidZone–which housed five kiddie attractions– would be closing down permanently at the beginning of 2023.

As we look toward what the future looks like at Universal Orlando, we just recently got a glimpse at the latest updates on the new Minions-themed attraction as construction is taking place.

Inside Universal Tweeted a photo:

The entrance to the unannounced Shrek replacement has been cemented. 

Guests can see from the photo that the Shrek 4D sign is gone– it was previously removed– and the doors where the three little pigs were have been closed up to make a fresh face for the new Minions ride. Universal Studios Florida will soon have two Minions rides, the unannounced ride, and Despicable Me Minion Mayhem.

The next step for the outside facade of the attraction will likely be adding actual decorations, which means we could see Minions soon.

What type of new Minion’s ride are you hoping Shrek will be turned into?
