If you love Despicable Me movies, then don’t miss this show. The fully immersive attraction takes guests on an exciting adventure with Gru, his daughters, and the mischievous Minions – an experience designed to entertain audiences of all ages. 

Live action characters such as Margo, Edith, Agnes as well as characters from Sing will appear during this performance.

The new show can be found at Soundstage 42 of the Illumination Avenue section of the park and was previously known for Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast and Hanna-Barbera Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera.

Visitors will experience all aspects of Minion movies through whimsical queues and pre-show videos.

As the show begins, Margo and Edith assure their audience they won’t be afraid of Gru, only for him to demonstrate otherwise by firing his Fart Gun and shooting some audience members in the face with it. 

Everyone held their breath until Edith assured them it actually released banana scent spray. After this incident the Minions started dancing to one of their popular songs while singing it along.

Once guests put on the goggles, a panel on their ride vehicle activates and they start training. Swerving, bouncing and plunging through an obstacle course featuring giant fly-swatters, cacti and water hoses; with girls watching from hovercraft; they squirt the riders with water to create mist effects as Edith distracts Minions with bananas before forcing them off into restricted areas where Gru has arrived quickly to rescue guests from falling.

He announces to guests that his daughter’s have asked him to recruit new Minion recruits for his latest scheme; his adorable daughters stand ready to begin training but must first pass his rigorous testing process first.

At their training session, Minions are presented with various tasks and activities that include laser beam games, mazes, and obstacle courses. On an obstacle course, Minions must work together by pushing and pulling each other to complete it successfully; while dodging various rides and decorations. 

At one point, they even get hit with Minion-Ray zapping them – only for this device to malfunction eventually and transform back into humans again!

At the conclusion of the attraction, guests are invited to participate in a dance party with Minions and take a souvenir photo in front of their house.
