The long-awaited Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride has officially opened to the public at Universal Studios Hollywood. While enjoying a short soft opening period since mid-March, the attraction has settled into steady reliable operation and is ready for visitors. In addition, the adjacent Super Silly Fun Land is open now as well!
Stars, dignitaries, politicians and minions made their way down the yellow carpet at a media event this morning. All gathered in front of Gru’s house on the upper lot to welcome the latest addition to the growing park.
After everyone was settled the ceremony began. Dancers flocked to the stage and we were treated to a rendition of the Oscar® Nominated song “Happy,” originally sung by Pharrell Williams.
Mario Lopez from TV’s Extra took to the stage and acted as MC over the proceedings.
WOW what an opening! We were then free to go explore the ride itself and Super Silly Fun Land.
The Silly Swirly was open!
Nobody dared go into the water play area.
The dry playground was not without visitors.
We even got to play the Super Space Killer game.
Congratualtions to Universal Studios Hollywood on a wonderful new land and two new attractions for kids of all ages to enjoy. With the new additions coming to the park that we told you about earlier this week (Fast& Furious-Super Charged, Springfield in 2015, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in 2016), this park will definitely become the all-day destination for Los Angeles.
NOTE: Please check back later today for video from today’s grand opening of Despicable Me Minion Mayhem and Super Silly Fun Land.
