Yet another exciting announcement for families!

Today, Universal Orlando Resort announced their newest attraction, based upon the blockbuster 3-D film “Despicable Me”. An exciting experience, set to replace the Jimmy Neutron attraction at Universal Studios Florida. In addition, Universal has also announced the arrival of one of the theme park’s greatest attractions – The Amazing Adventures of Spider Man.


This movie quickly became the sixth most successful film that Universal Pictures has ever distributed and the 10th biggest animated film in U.S history. The movie will become the first-ever Universal animated film, to be transformed into a theme park experience.

The 3-D animated adventure thrilled audiences across the globe with its outrageous humor, endearing characters and compelling storyline – all of which guests will be able to experience exclusively at Universal Orlando in 2012.

Features include:

  • High-tech 3-D digital adventure with their favorite characters from the film – Gru, daughters Margo, Edith and Agnes, and of course, Gru’s not-so-bright pit crew, the minions
  • Ability to explore Gru’s lair and descend into his secret lab
  • Transform yourself and family members into minions
  • Get swept into a first-ever, minion-inspired, interactive dance party where guests can show off their best moves


This attraction will raise the bar for theme park entertainment mixing both advanced motion-based ride vehicles, 3-D digital film and live special effects to create an unparalleled ride experience.  It is widely acknowledged as one of the best theme park experiences in the world – and it’s about to get mind-blowingly better.

The newly reanimated, high-definition experience will combine new Infitec system and new set enhancements to transform the current attraction  into what will feel like an all-new experience.

Features will include

  • All-new digital animation done in 4K high definition – the highest HD resolution available
  • The new HD animation will allow guests to experience details they’ve never been able to before – from the flames spewing from Hobgoblin’s pumpkins to the electricity arching through Electro’s body to the stitching on Spider-Man’s gloves.
  • To take advantage of new HD clarity and detail, Universal Orlando is adding entirely new details to the film – and leaving it up to guests to find them.

“Guests will not believe their eyes when they experience the new Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man,” said Thierry Coup, senior vice president of the Universal Creative Studio.  “We are talking about a larger-than-life environment and the HD animation will make it even more remarkable than it has been.  It will seem brand-new.”

Both attraction are set to open in 2012. For more information about Universal Orlando Resort, visit
