New “Minions: The Rise of Gru” Decorations, Photo Ops and Minion Mayhem Dance Party at Universal Studios Florida

To promote the release of “Minions: The Rise of Gru” on July 1, Universal Studios Florida is offering new decorations, photo ops and a dance party at the release of Despicable Me Minion Mayhem.

Visitors entering the park will immediately remember the film thanks to a large banner hanging from the arch.

The circular banner features three Minions, one holding a boom box.

An orange and blue tie-dye pattern is behind them. “Minions: The Rise of Gru” is set in the 1970s, so the decorations have a 70s aesthetic.

A photo/play location for the film can be found at Universal Music Plaza.

The backdrop has a teal and pink tie-dye pattern and a giant boom box at the top.

Some Minions in tracksuits are on either side of the backdrop.

The game is for two players. The buttons on this grid light up and players must hit them.

Unfortunately, the sun was a bit too bright to see the buttons light up when we stopped.

Nearby, a black curtain covers a panel we believe will be for a preview of “Minions: The Rise of Gru.”

We could see a glimpse of yellow through the curtains. This is where a sign previously advertised a “Sing 2” preview.

Guests can meet a Minion in front of a tie-dye backdrop in the Hollywood district.

The backdrop has the “Minions: The Rise of Gru” logo at the top.

On the side of Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, a new overlay for the film can be found at the exit of the attraction.

The screens above the exit change from the steel Gru logo to a 70s dance party hosted by the Minions.

A screen features different Minions on a psychedelic tie-dye background.

The other screen shows various Minions in ’70s outfits dancing among the exiting crowd.

Watch a video of the dance party below.
