Villain Con, Universal

We found out at the beginning of December that the upcoming Despicable Me-themed attraction at Universal Studios Florida, now known as Villain-Con Minion Blast will bring the world of supervillains from the Despicable Me and Minions series of movies to the theme park as guests enter the world of Villain-Con, the biggest criminal convention on the planet.

In recent months we have seen work being done on the exterior of the attraction building which used to house Shrek 4-D. Now in a twitter post by reporter Alicia Stella, we can clearly see a poster added to the entrance facade for what will be the new Villain-Con Minion Blast attraction.

Much like the nearby Men in Black: Alien Attack ride, Villain-Con Minion Blast will be an interactive, game-style attraction that will challenge guests to use a special blaster to complete various tasks throughout the attraction and earn a score that could qualify them as villainous enough to join The Vicious 6, who we'd guess will appear in this attraction, as guests complete the various challenges throughout the experience. 

If you would like to find out more about what to expect from this new attraction head to our Featured article, Everything We Know (So Far!) About Villain-Con Minion Blast. We will keep you posted of further updates on our news and Facebook page.
