We spent today in the non-Harry Potter park and had a delightful time. The rides were less intense but still very fun for all. The Despicable Me ride stood out though. I’m a big fan of the movie and can’t wait for the sequel. The ride took nothing away from my enjoyment of the franchise. They used the same voice actors so there wasn’t anything jarringly out of place. Through several stages, they funneled us into a theatre with little piston-mounted carts and 3D glasses. Then for 5 minutes or so we were projected into the world of the minions, being thrown around, and blown up, and taunted with bananas. Banana?
