Villain-Con Minion Blast

Concept Art for IlluminationsVillain Con Minion Blast at Universal Orlando Resort

Belle Bottom, Jean Clawed, and the other members of the Vicious 6 will join guests aboard Illumination’s Minions at Villain-Con. Visitors will “blast their way to supervillain stardom.”

Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast is a moving walkway stand-through shooting attraction. The attraction was developed in partnership between Universal’s award-winning creative team and the filmmakers from Illumination. This interactive blaster game experience invites guests to compete against each other in hopes to join the franchise’s most dastardly supervillains.

Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast will use screen technology, gaming interactivity and physical sets to create a unique, game-based adventure. Guests will put their villainous skills to the test in these immersive environments, where they’ll spot nefarious evil-doers and mischievous Minions from Illumination’s films. The attraction promises to allow guests to interact with these characters in a whole new way.

The story behind the attraction is that guests are transported to Villain-Con: the biggest criminal convention on the planet. Here, they are instructed to take part in a competition to see if they have what it takes to become the newest member of The Vicious 6. Guests will then grab an interactive blaster and step onto a motion-based pathway to start blasting.

They’ll move through several scenes where they earn points by shooting at a variety of items and causing as much destruction as possible.

Villain-Con Minion Blast will be part of Illumination’s Minion Land on Illumination Avenue, also including the pre-existing Despicable Me Minion Mayhem and upcoming Minion Café, Bake My Day Eater, and Pop-A-Nana Popcorn.
