Even if you've never seen the hit animated film, it doesn't take long to fall for Gru, the Scourge of Humanity, in this wild virtual-reality chase through the movie. Two extremely funny (and cute) preshow rooms—Gru's living room and laboratory—set the stage for the 3-D ride. With help from his adopted daughters Margo, Edith, and Agnes (and ever-so-anxious minions), Gru reviews everyone to make sure they're ready to become minions. Sporting your "minion goggles" (aka 3-D glasses) you are transformed into minions for the ride itself, which is filled with close calls and colorful characters as you pursue the ever-elusive prize: the girls' gift for their dad on the one-year anniversary of their adoption. To celebrate, the ride exits into a minion disco. Of course. The 3-D experience, with preshows, lasts about 20 minutes (about five minutes on the ride itself). Not recommended for expectant mothers or anyone with motion sickness or back, neck, or heart problems. For people with disabilities: Closed-captioned devices are available; wheelchair guests may remain in their chairs; all guests must be more than 40 inches tall. Arrive early, late, or use an Express Pass. Go for the stationary seats if you think you'll suffer from motion sickness.
