The Minions Are Taking Over Universal Orlando Resort

Villain-Con Minion Blast has been in development for quite some time now, as construction walls have covered the surrounding area of the upcoming ride.

Replacing the old Shrek: 4-D Ride, Villain-Con Minion Blast is set to debut this summer, and with June arriving, time will tell just how soon the attraction will open to the public.

Now, it seems the opening date for the attraction is approaching as construction walls have recently come down, revealing everything as Guests await an official opening date news brief from Universal Orlando Resort.

Besides the walls coming down for Villain-Con Minion Blast, the already-existing Minion Mayhem ride has had some refurbishment work done, along with a new Minions Land sign going up.

The Minions are taking over Universal Studios Florida – and now, Universal has unexpectedly opened a brand-new retail experience focused on these lovable little yellow dudes.
