The attraction will be a great addition to the outstanding Minion Land, which opened a few weeks back and garners praise from Universal fans. This attraction will feature all-new innovative technology that will submerge Guests in a never-before-seen experience for families and kids of all ages to enjoy! Aside from the mischievous minions now taking over on Illumination Avenue, Universal is also gearing up for the grand opening of its new theme Park, Epic Universe, opening in 2025. Universal Hollywood opened SUPER NINTENDO WORLD in January, a massive hit with immersive environments not seen anywhere else in North America.

Universal Orlando is also gearing up for its Halloween Horror Nights event from September 1 through November 4. This year, Stranger Things 4 was announced as a haunted house as new details surfaced about what fans can expect. Universal Studios Orlando has an excellent Universal creative team that creates fantastic new attractions where Guests can experience the Illuminations blockbuster franchises through an interactive blaster game experience with innovative screen technology where fans can see a supervillain or two and a popular character or two, like Belle Bottom from the Illuminations films. The old Monsters Cafe was recently rethemed to the now-open new Minion Cafe in Illuminations Minion Land. Watch out for those banana bombs, explosive nunchucks, and nefarious villains! As expected, Guests will miss the old Shrek 4 D attraction, which was replaced by this new attraction, Villain Con Minion Blast.
