Minion Blast Construction Underway

Minion Blast construction is still ongoing. We stopped by the other day to check on the progress.

The new attraction is taking place in what was formerly the location of the Shrek 4-D experience.

Universal announced a retheming of the area into a newly re-imagined Minions Land. Minion Land will be located on Florida theme park’s Illumination Avenue and will have a new ride, Villain-Con Minion Blast.

The attraction is slated as a family-friendly ride.

“This interactive, blaster game experience will invite guests to put their villainous skills to the test as they compete against each other in a bid to join the ranks of the franchise’s most infamous supervillains.”

Guests will utilize a blaster to cause destruction and earn points in an attempt to become members of The Vicious 6. The Vicious 6 are supervillain characters from the latest Minions The Rise of Gru movie.

Let’s take a look at what construction we can see going on.

The first thing we notice is the big blue construction wall with lots of adorable Minions hard at work. We can also see some scaffolding peaking over the top. There are some scrims covering one area of the scaffolding.

Here we can see one of the Villan Con Posters on the construction wall. We can even some patchwork has been done on the building above and it appears it’s being prepped for some paintwork.

Universal Orlando already has a Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction already in place. The new Villian-Con Minion Blast will be the second ride attraction in the upcoming Minions-themed land.

Opening Soon

The Minion Land is slated to open sometime this summer.
