Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem….Universal Studios

Posted in UNIVERSAL STUDIOS with tags , , on November 9, 2012 by disneychronicles

Have you been to Universal lately?

We have been wanting to check out Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem since we loved the movie!

It is very cute!

Minion Mayhem starts in the living room, where you pick up 3-D minion glasses and enter the Minionization Prep Room. Gru scans new recruits for “human germs,” cracks a few jokes and shoots a fart gun, which, of course, the kids find hilarious.

From there, you board Minion Transformation Pods — eight-seat ride simulators in a big auditorium. For the next four minutes, you whiz through a minion obstacle course, fall into an antigravity recycling room and dodge a monster crusher, all the while Agnes tries to give daddy Gru a gift.

It is bumpy and 3D so if you easily get motion sickness beware!

It’s rare to say a theme park ride lasts long enough, but this one actually does.

While it helps to be familiar with the movie, it isn’t necessary. Newbies can watch a 15-minute video introduction to the plot as they wait in line.

The ride incorporates so many details from the movie — right down to the banana trees out front — that visitors can go multiple times and still see something new. That will be a big plus when minions return to the big screen next July for the release of Despicable Me 2.

Children must be 48 inches tall to ride alone or 40 inches if accompanied by an adult. Pregnant women and those prone to dizziness are prohibited. There is the option for stationary seating which makes this perfect for everyone!
