The first themed elements of the new Villain-Con Minion Blast attraction have been added to the ride’s entrance, with 2 banners now hanging advertising the “Convention” and the appearance of the “Vicious 6”.

The attraction is set to take guests inside Villain-Con – the biggest criminal convention on the planet – to take part in an epic competition to see if they have what it takes to become the newest member of The Vicious 6, a notorious group of supervillains from the hit film, Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Villain-Con Minion Blast combines innovative screen technology, state-of-the-art gaming interactivity, and elaborate physical sets to create a one-of-a-kind, game-based adventure where guests encounter immersive environments, villains, and, of course, Minions.

Villain-Con Minion Blast will open within the new Minion Land on Illumination Ave. The new Minion Cafe is also well under construction, with steel framework being erected to expand the restaurant’s footprint.

More details about Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast and Minion Land will be revealed in the months ahead. The attraction is scheduled to open Summer 2023.
