Universal Studios Despicable Me Minion Mayhem Ride Features Adoption Celebration

I’ve never reviewed a theme park ride before. Universal Studios Hollywood will be opening Minion Mayhem to the public on April 11. The ride features characters from Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2, and features a short mini-movie where riders frequently interact with the girls Gru adopted, Margot, Edith and Agnes. After escaping various perilous situations (with help from Gru,) the girls and the riders all arrive at a balloon-filled surprise party that Gru planned to celebrate the anniversary of his adoption of the girls.
If you live in or near Los Angeles and have adopted a young child, this ride might be a fun way to celebrate the anniversary of your child joining your family.
If your family has been touched by adoption in a painful way, this ride might be unexpectedly challenging, although the word “adoption” is never mentioned.
Think you'll go?
