Another blockbuster movie, another theme park attraction.
Universal Studios Hollywood unveiled new details Tuesday of its next major attraction: a 3-D motion-simulator ride based on Universal Pictures' 2010 movie "Despicable Me."
Dubbed Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, the new ride, along with an interactive playland called Super Silly Fun Land, will open this spring at the site of the defunct attraction Terminator 2: 3D.
The new attraction follows an increasingly popular strategy among theme parks that install rides based on the characters and stories of blockbuster movies. The rides draw movie fans while theme parks generate hefty revenue from the sale of T-shirts and souvenirs.
