Considering the remarkable progress made thus far, it leaves us wondering if the headlining attraction, Villain-Con Minion Blast, might also be ready for a soft opening just in time for the bustling July 4th holiday. While no official confirmation has been provided, we remain hopeful and will provide updates as soon as they become available.

According to Screamscape, team members had the opportunity to conduct test runs of Villain-Con Minion Blast last week, marking an exciting step forward. Guests will have the opportunity to join Belle Bottom, Jean Clawed, and the rest of the Vicious 6 to “blast their way to supervillain stardom.”

Last week also saw the opening of the official gift shop for Villain-Con Minion Blast, aptly named ‘Evil Stuff.’ Adorned with an array of Minion statues, the store offers an abundance of Minion merchandise, ranging from clothing and bags to water bottles and cuddly Minion toys.
