Guest Allegedly Damages the Inside Queue of Villain-Con Minion Blast

In a post recently submitted on Twitter, Alicia Stella, an industry insider and journalist, posted the following:

Minion Blast crocodile now behind stanchions after (supposedly) a guest damaged it. Tank screen itself seems fine.

– Alicia Stella on Twitter 

The alligator appears to be a screen in which the animal swims around and greets guests as they walk by; it has been damaged after some stanchions have been placed to keep guests away. The attraction has only been open for several weeks now, and already, someone has attempted to damage Universal property. It’s best to keep your children or yourself away from such areas inside the queue if it can help to preserve the effort that went into creating such an excellent theme for a great ride.

Hopefully, those barricades will be removed soon, and the prop will be returned to its original form for all guests to enjoy.
