On Wednesday morning, Universal shared new ways that guests can eat, laugh and make mischief with Minions in the “highly anticipated” opening on Minion Land on Illumination Ave.
The new land, which expands upon the popular Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction and will debut a new collection of experiences for guests of all ages to enjoy inspired by the beloved “Minions” franchise.
Once guests enter the land, they’ll be greeted by a fun, photo-worthy “Minion Land” marquee featuring 22 Minions before “embarking on the mischief that awaits along Illumination Ave.”
