Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem is a simulator ride attraction at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood. This attraction is based upon Universal Studios’ 2010 animated film Despicable Me. It uses 3-D digital animation. It replaced Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast in Florida, and Terminator 2 3D Hollywood.
Universal Orlando Resort announced the creation of the attraction by Universal Creative in collaboration with Illumination Entertainment, Despicable Me film producer Chris Meledandri. The motion simulator uses high-definition 3-D Infitec projections and features several characters from the film including Gru, Margo and Edith.

The attraction at Universal Studios Florida is located in Soundstage 42 in the Production Central area. The Soundstage was previously home to The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera 1990 up to 2002, and Jimmy Neutron’s Nicktoon Blast from 2003 up until 2011.. Universal Studios Hollywood’s attraction is situated on the site of T2-3D: Battle Across Time, which was located on the Upper Lot.

The ride ends with the possibility to enter a dance party where the public can dance to “Boogie Fever” with a Minion costume.
