  • Since our last update in March, the attraction’s entrance has seemingly been completed, with a big Villain-Con marquee.
  • A banner has also gone up around the building reading “So much fun, it’s a crime.”
  • More banners featuring members of the Vicious 6 can also be seen around the building.

More on Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast:

  • Developed in partnership between Universal’s award-winning creative team and the acclaimed filmmakers from Illumination, this interactive, blaster game experience will invite guests to put their villainous skills to the test as they compete against each other in a bid to join the ranks of the franchise’s most infamous supervillains.
  • 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, nefarious villains and tons of mischievous Minions from Illumination’s films in a whole new way.
  • The world-class attraction transports guests to 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.
  • Guests who are up for the challenge will grab an interactive blaster and step onto a motion-based pathway to put their skills to the test.
  • They’ll wind and glide through various scenes where they earn points by blasting a variety of items and causing as much mayhem and destruction as possible.
  • It’s a unique, mischief-filled experience that’s so much fun, it’s a crime.
