Mischief is afoot at Universal Orlando Resort where Universal Studios Florida will see not just a new attraction, Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast, but also a new Minion Land complete with a new Minion Café — and all of it set to debut summer 2023.

Villain-Con Minion Blast will be located at Universal Studios Florida within the new Minion Land on Illumination Ave. This new area will also feature the fan-favorite Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction, a new Minion Café and other surprises inspired by popular characters from Illumination’s blockbuster franchises.

The Villain-Con Minion Blast attraction promises 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.

As far as the attraction’s story…

  • Guests will find themselves at Villain-Con (the biggest criminal convention on the planet) to take part in an epic competition to see if they have what it takes to become the newest member of The Vicious 6, a notorious group of supervillains from the hit film, “Minions: The Rise of Gru.”
  • Guests who are up for the challenge will grab an interactive blaster and step onto a motion-based pathway to put their skills to the test. They’ll 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.

Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast opens at Universal Studios Florida in summer 2023. An official opening date has not yet been announced.
