Despite only having two theme parks, Universal Orlando Resort has an entire arsenal of attractions, the likes of which easily rival Walt Disney World.
Between Universal Studios Orlando and Islands of Adventure, the theme park company has two Wizarding World of Harry Potter areas, an entire site dedicated to Marvel Comics, and a total area dedicated to the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World franchises.
Now, Universal Studios Orlando is preparing to open a new attraction, creating a new theme park area. We’re talking, of course, about Illumination’s Villain-Con: Minion Blast.
This shoot ’em up style attraction is an entirely new kind of attraction in that Guests have no ride vehicle. Instead, Guests stand on a moving walkway, staying in a specific spot (or else their laser blaster will stop firing).
Not only that, this attraction also requires the use of Guests’ smartphones. By using the official Universal app, Guests can connect with their laser gun, keeping track of their score.
But that’s not the only neat addition being advertised alongside this upcoming ride:

Universal has begun advertising a new perk: free wifi! This is an excellent perk because the Universal app is required to check on wait times for every attraction throughout the theme park.
In short, there’s a lot the official Universal Orlando Resort app can be used for outside of Illumination’s Villain-Con: Minion Blast, so it’s a no-brainer that the theme park Resort is offering free wifi.
In case you were wondering, Walt Disney World Resort also offers free wifi to all visiting Guests.
Are you looking forward to Universal’s latest attraction?
