*Update* Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem begins soft openings at Universal Studios Hollywood
*Update* We learned today that Universal Studios Hollywood has pushed back the grand opening one day to April 11.
Guests visiting Universal Studios Hollywood will get a chance to ride the all-new Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem before its official opening on April 10.
During this all-new experience, guests will be transported into Gru’s house as they walk through his living room and encounter visual elements as seen in the film – including the moon-shrinking SR-6 shrink ray. The journey continues as they swerve, bounce and plunge to get through the 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.
Once back onto the streets, guests can experience ‘Super Silly Fun Land.’ This area features a new flat ride, shops and dining all themed around the world of Despicable Me.
It is also said that the theater housing the attraction is twice as large as the one we have here at Universal Orlando which should help dramatically with wait times.
This is a technical rehearsal, so the ride is not guaranteed to be opened all day.
