Universal Orlando Resort reveals Minion Land opening date
Universal Orlando Resort has revealed that Minion Land on Illumination Avenue will officially open to guests on 11 August 2023 at Universal Studios Florida.
Currently in preview for guests, Minion Land was created in partnership between the visionary teams at Universal Creative and Illumination and brings to life a whole new level of Minion mischief and diabolical fun.
This one-of-a-kind land expands upon the wildly popular Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction to engage the entire family in a new collection of humorous adventures inspired by Illumination’s beloved Minions franchise. In Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast guests can blast their way to supervillain stardom. Blending immersive sets, interactive game-based technology, and an original storyline, this first-of-its-kind attraction puts guests’ villainous skills to the test to see if they have what it takes to become a member of the Vicious 6 – a notorious group of supervillains from the hit film, “Minions: The Rise of Gru.”
Guests can fuel up for the mayhem with a unique dining experience, Illumination’s Minion Café – a new eatery run by the Minions featuring inventive fare for every guest; Pop-A-Nana – a kiosk featuring banana-flavoured popcorn; Freeze Ray Pops – a walk-up window serving refreshingly colourful frozen treats; and Bake My Day – a retail location and bakery featuring Minion-themed sweet treats. They can also pick up all the items necessary to complete their villainous transformation at the new Evil Stuff retail store.
Guests can also stop by the outdoor Illumination Theatre façade to meet, greet, and interact with beloved characters like the Minions, Gru, Margo, Edith, and Agnes from the “Despicable Me” franchise, and Rosita, Gunter, and Johnny from the hit film “Sing.”
