This is a motion simulator ride and it can be somewhat jarring for young and elderly guests, but stationary seating is available. The film itself includes some cartoon violence that can be considered to be PG (same as the Despicable Me films.)
When Universal Studios Florida originally opened in 1990 the attraction housed here in Soundstage 42 was called "The Funtastic World of Hanna Barbera." That attraction took you through multiple cartoon worlds including Scooby Doo, The Flintsones, and The Jetsons on your journey to save Elroy, with your pilot Yogi Bear and co-pilot Boo Boo. Later in 2003 the ride was converted into "Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast," starring many popular Nicktoon characters like Spongebob, Rugrats, and The Fairly OddParents. The new version utilized the same ride system and pre-show layout with new films.
"Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem" opened in 2012, and unlike its predecessors, this version of the motion simulator included a 3D film, rather than 2D. The pre-show layout changed somewhat, allowing more room inside, taking space away from the interactive playground near the exit. The dance party area introduced with the Nicktoon variation remains though, where you can now get down with the Minions on your way out.
