More Steel Rises at Universal Studios Florida for Future Minions ‘Villain-Con’ Attraction

For the past couple of months, we have been keeping you up-to-date surrounding the construction of the new Villain-Con attraction coming to Universal Studios Florida. This new attraction is reportedly based on the Villain-Con convention from the first solo “Minions” movie.

Looking at the work on the upcoming Minion’s Villain-Con attraction, we can see that while progress is underway, there’s still a long way to go. Supports have been added to the front, presumably for a new sign or other theming. The faded “Soundstage 4-D Universal Studios” is still visible at the top of the building.

Previously, we only saw the left side (standing facing the building) series of beams had been erected, now the right side has a similar set of matching beams over the entrance.

At this time, it is unclear what the new Villain-Con attraction will be. Previous rumors included a trackless ride, a walk-through attraction, a combination of the two, or something completely different. Reports most strongly indicate a “ride-through” combination where guests are transported through the attraction via a moving walkway.
