Description And Comments

Despicable Me Minion Mayhem involves high-tech motion simulators moving and reacting in sync with a cartoon projected on an IMAX-like screen. The projection system employs high-definition 3-D digital technology.

The story combines elements from the animated movie Despicable Me, starring Gru, the archvillain, along with his adopted daughters and his diminutive yellow Minions. During the queue and preshow, you visit Gru’s house and are then ushered into his lab, where you’re turned into a Minion. The ride ends with a disco dance party that you join as you exit.

Touring Tips

The ride is just inside the USF main entrance, making crowding a problem. If you’re on hand at park opening and you ride Despicable Me first, you’ll have a short wait, but you’ll set yourself up for a long wait at nearby Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit. If the coaster is a priority for you, ride it first and then return to Despicable Me immediately afterward. If by that time the wait is intolerable, try again in the late afternoon. Stationary seating is available for those prone to motion sickness and for children less than 40 inches tall; ask an attendant for directions. On busy days they occasionally open up a queue with direct access to stationary seating, which can significantly slash your wait time.
