Guests will soon experience a new attraction thanks to the new Minion Land inside Universal Studios Florida. Villian Con Minion Blast is Universal’s last part of this world to finish. Earlier in 2023, Universal Studios Orlando opened Minion Land, which includes many fun experiences, like Bake My Day, Minion Cafe, Pop-A-Nana, Freeze Ray Pops, and much more. Universal Guests can join Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and the entire Minion crew as they take Guests on a mischievous adventure you won’t soon forget with Desible Me Minion Mayhem, as well.

Recently, Angel s. tweeted a photo showing the walls are finally being removed from Villian Con Minion Blast. This attraction is set to open Summer of 2023. Guests have been anticipating an opening date due to Minion Land being complete.

In previous reports, it was revealed that the attraction was being opened to Universal Team Members. For now, the attraction remains closed to the public, but it won’t be long before it opens. Universal Orlando Annual Passholders have an exclusive night on August 26. Strong rumors suggest that the attraction will be open before this point, but we’ll have to wait and see for now.

Disney Dining will continue to update Universal Orlando fans on the latest developments happening at the theme parks.
