Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem

dmmmDespicable Me: Minion Mayhem is a motion simulator ride in Universal Orlando, that is planed to be built in the California park in April of 2014.  Guests will experience themed queues, preshow videos and comedic dialogue that set up the fundamental plot: Gru schemes to create more mischievous Minions from human recruits.  Guests will be transported into Gru’s house as they meander through his living room and encounter visual elements as seen in the film, including the moon-shrinking SR-6 shrink ray and then zig zag into his lab.  The exciting journey continues as they swerve, bounce and plunge to get through the frantically humorous Minion training mission while donning specially designed 3D Minion goggles.  The fun continue in a post-show dance party where Minion walkaround characters invite guests to strut their stuff in an impromptu Minion-inspired dance party.  This ride, although not as thrilling as most of our articled rides, definitely will be quite an immerseive experience.

Some characters walking around the event were; Frankenstein, Shaggy, Scooby Doo, and Beetlejuice. There were lots of volunteers at this event, as well as park employees who decided to give a helping hand, creating an amazing group of people giving back to the community!

Now, although the park hasn’t announced any hints on what might replace it, many Universal fans have been posting there ideas of a new thrill ride.
