New at Universal Studios – Despicable Me – Minion Mayhem

This is a simulator ride based on the 2010 animation.  The ride replaces the old Jimmy Neutron ride, so is positioned just opposite the Shrek show.  As with most of the rides at Universal it is really well themed even in the waiting area.  You enter through Gru’s home and go on to visit his lab where you are shrunk to take part in your Minion training.  As you may expect the scheme goes wrong and the cadets go on to suffer some exciting adventures that need Gru to save the day.  It is a happy ever after ending, finishing with a Minion dance party.  As with the previous Jimmy Neutron ride it is a motion-based seated action ride – it can get bumpy at times.    If you are not good with the movement you can request a static seat.
