Based on the $540-million grossing Universal Pictures movie, Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem has replaced Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast, which closed in August 2011. It reuses the simulator-style ride system employed by the Jimmy Neutron attraction, although it does feature a new Infitec 3-D projection system.
Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem is the first ride at any of Universal's theme parks to be based on a Universal-produced animated movie, with all-new scenes having been produced for the attraction. The ride features appearances from well-known characters including Gru, Margo, Edith, Agnes and the diminuitive minions.
Guests first enter Gru's home, where they are asked by the bungling super-villain to join his legions of minions. After undertaking some "minion training", riders then find themselves on a journey with Gru and his daughters, before joining an interactive "dance party" with the minions.
The stars of the Despicable Me movie, including Steve Carell and Miranda Cosgrove, lend their voices to the attraction.
