ORLANDO, Fla. – Universal Orlando is inching closer to opening its all-new Minion Land at Universal Studios Florida.

When guests step onto Illumination Avenue this summer, they will find the all-new attraction, “Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast,” the Minion Café, the “Bake My Day” dessert shop and the all-new Illumination Theater.

During Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast, guests will grab an interactive blaster and step onto a motion-based pathway to put their villain skills to the test. Universal said the new interactive blaster game experience is scheduled to open sometime this summer and will combine innovative screen technology, state-of-the-art gaming interactivity and elaborate physical sets.
