Yes, a new parade:
Universal’s Superstar Parade offers an entirely new form of interactive entertainment that gives guests and entire families the opportunity to join in the fun with some of their favorite characters – including the minions from the blockbuster animated adventure Despicable Me, E.B. from the hit comedy Hop, Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora & Diego. The parade features larger-than-life floats, state-of-the-art technology and hundreds of energetic street performers.
A new Ride, Universal Orlando’s newest ride, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem
The ride begins when guests enter Gru, Margo, Edith and Agnes’ home and learn they are being recruited to become minions. After picking up 3-D “minion goggles” in the living room and being scanned for “human germs” in the Minionization Prep Room, guests board Minion Transformation Pods to begin their training. Things don’t go as planned and guests find themselves on an unforgettable adventure through Gru’s lab that’s filled with laughter, chaos and tons of minions.
The ride experience is capped off with an exciting dance party where guests can show off their best moves with the minions. With a sparkling disco ball hanging overhead, the interactive celebration features large projection screens so that guests can see themselves partying with the minions to the legendary disco tune “Boogie Fever.”
Also they have a new Fireworks/laser show!
