Universal Studios Hollywood's new Despicable Me ride going through a name crisis


Universal Studios Hollywood is getting their version of the Minion Mayhem ride that we have here in Orlando later this spring.  But the name has gone through a bit of a crisis lately.  The ride was announced as Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, exactly like it is named in Orlando.  But recent photos have begun popping up of a new title for the ride, now called Despicable Me: The Ride.

Not sure exactly why Universal is doing this.  It could be to differentiate the ride from the other areas of the Despicable Me area, which will include Super Silly Fun Land as well.

Which do you prefer?  Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem or Despicable Me: The Ride?
