Despicable Me Minion Mayhem reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, a simulator ride in Production Central at Universal Studios Florida. (The minimum height to ride is 40 inches.)
Written by Robert Niles
Minion Mayhem replaced the Jimmy Neutron attraction at Universal Studios Florida in July 2012. You'll enter Gru's house, then walk into his secret laboratory, where you'll be transformed into Minions to do Gru's work. Of course, it all goes wrong, as you ride in moving seats for this 3D film. After the show, you can meet and dance with Universal's popular Minions in a post-show "dance party," before exiting through the Minion-laden gift shop.
I'll always miss Hanna-Barbera, but this is a drastic improvement over Jimmy Neutron. A whole lot of fun with just the right amount of minion action. 9/10 - Jonathan Katz
Amazing. Even better than expected. It's fun incarnate. And the two preshows are absolutely hilarious. - Rob Pastor
It's a fun ride. It did it's job. It updated the simulator with more hip cartoons. This long term viability of this ride will probably depend on the success of the next couple movies. Universal did a good job with the entertaining pre show and queue. The ride felt a little lacking, but that's probably because I'm so used to Jimmy. 7/10. - Quentin Scruggs
I seemed to enjoy the queue and preshow for this attraction more than the actual ride itself. The picture on screen is very crisp and the story is fun, however the movement of the ride simulators were lacking for me. - Will Sullivan
OMG, this was such a cute attraction... from beginning to the surprise at the end. LOVED IT!!! The lines can get very long for this due to it's popularity! - Michelle Morgan
Just a fun attraction from beginning to end. The visuals are crisp and the simulator movements are smooth and perfectly in sync. The ride captures the spirit and the sense of adventure from the movies nicely. A well done family attraction that is a must-see. - Manny Barron
Fun ride expending on the movies and that's a good thing. - O T
It was okay. I didn't expect the super long preshow and the 40 minute wait (in express pass) but the show areas good. Much better than Jimmy. 7.5/10 - Jaiden Cohen
A great update to Jimmy Neutron. Fun for the whole family. - N B
