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.
