The Setup

The Vicious 6, a team of supervillains from the 1970s, has time-traveled to present-day Orlando for Villain-Con, hosted this year at Universal Studios Florida. “Villain-Con is an annual gathering of supervillains and evildoers, this time happening at Universal Studios Florida,” explains Carson Luter, associate project manager with Universal Creative for the Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast project.

You’re invited to attend and maybe even secure a spot with the Vicious 6. So, unleash your inner badness and take the villainy challenge!

The Experience

The queue for the attraction starts outside, where signs and pre-show videos bring you up to speed on Villain-Con and the Vicious 6.

Inside, explore the main convention hall filled with puns, gadgets, and displays. Gear up with evil weaponry, plan diabolical vacations, and adopt your own villainous pet.

Receive your interactive E-Liminator X blaster before entering the loading station. Your blaster syncs with the Universal Orlando Resort App, letting you track your score during the experience.

The Ride

Enter chaos mode. Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast is part attraction, part video game where you shoot targets with your blaster. Unlike traditional rides, you stand on a moving walkway, free to aim and shoot without constraints.

The interactive rooms immerse you in the “Despicable Me” and “Minions” universe, complete with catchy music and stunning scenery.

Blast at targets, power-ups, and even Minions to earn points. The top scorer wins a spot with the Vicious 6.

As you progress through themed rooms, including those of Vicious 6 members like Belle Bottom and Jean Clawed, keep an eye out for hidden collectibles and surprises.

How to Play

Use your blaster to hit targets and build up elemental ammo. Special ammo types like Freeze Rays and Banana Bombs boost your score.

Look for hidden targets and lesser-known point-earners to maximize your score.

Attraction Details

No height requirement, but guests must stand on the walkway independently.

Universal Express Pass not available.

Pro Tips

Aim for smaller, hidden targets and unique set pieces to maximize points.

Hit the scenery for additional points while others focus on obvious targets.

Explore Evil Stuff, a themed gift shop, for Vicious 6 and Villain-Con merch after the ride.

Meet and Greet

Visit Illumination’s Meet and Greet to mingle with Minions and characters like Gru, Agnes, and characters from “Sing.”

Enjoy a Minions dance party at Super Silly Stuff.
