Minion Land Is Now Open at Universal Orlando Resort


Guests of all ages can now immerse themselves in the world of Illumination’s Minions franchise when they visit Universal Studios Florida. The highly anticipated Minion Land is now open, and includes activities like Villain-Con Minion Blast, Minion Café, Bake My Day, and much more!

President & COO of Universal Orlando Resort Karen Irwin was quoted as saying, “This immersive and captivating new addition to our destination was brought to life in a partnership with our colleagues at Illumination and puts our guests into the heart, and villainous minds, of this diabolically fun franchise. This rich new environment has so much for all our guests to enjoy.”

This vibrant new land will be full of Minion mischief and fun for the whole family. When guests enter Illumination Ave. they will be welcomed with a fun surprise — a photo-worthy marquee that features 22 Minions will greet visitors and will let you know the fun is about to begin!

Below is a list of the exciting new experiences awaiting guests in Minion Land.

Universal Orlando Resort
  • Villain-Con Minion Blast- Villain-Con Minion Blast blends immersive sets, interactive game-based technology, and an original storyline for a first-of-its-kind attraction that puts guests’ villainous skills to the test to see if they have what it takes to become a member of the Vicious 6 – a notorious group of supervillains from the hit film, Minions: The Rise of Gru. Villain-Con Minion Blast is also the first Universal Orlando attraction to feature a connected gameplay experience via The Official Universal Orlando Resort App. By syncing their blaster to the app with just a tap, contenders can take their game to an entirely new level and track their scores, embark on special missions within the attraction, unlock evil perks and extra powerful blasts to help them gain more points and earn digital collectibles.
