Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem to open 'officially' on July 2
Written by Robert Niles
Universal Orlando Resort today confirmed that July 2 will be the official public opening date for Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, which is now in "technical rehearsals" at Universal Studios Florida.Tweet
The show replaces the Jimmy Neutron attraction, near the front gate of the Orlando park. So far, initial reports from Theme Park Insider readers have been positive, with the first review calling Minion Mayhem "a fun and heartwarming simulator ride. The dance party at the end was the icing on top of the cake."
If you're wondering about that dance party, Despicable Me's "post show" features live and filmed Minion characters who lead visitors in some dancing before ushering them into the requisite gift shop. The soft-opening technical rehearsals seem to be happening frequently, so there's a good chance that patient visitors can get a crack at the ride before July 2. If you do, please stop by our Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem page to leave a rating and review.
