From Blazin 102.3 Tallahassee's radio station page:

"Each concert is included with your Universal Studios admission. Plus, you’ll experience rides and attractions that put you right into the action of your favorite movies and TV shows. There’s all-new excitement this year with the premiere of Universal’s Superstar Parade, Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular–100 Years of Movie Memories nighttime show, and the hilarious new 3-D ride, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem now open."

TM reviews are coming in, and here's the info I've gathered:

Some absolutely love it and rode it a couple times during their break.
Some liked it but it was incredibly overhyped.
The rest didn't like it and think they should of kept Neutron.

Soft openings to the public should be any day now, possibly even today.

Orlando Informer posted an update that an overflow queue has been set up, and the ride could be soft opening any minute now.

TM previews stop in 15 minutes, but some workers removed the warning sign to put in a wait time sign. Soft openings are confirmed for next week.

No soft openings today, but TMs are saying soft openings should begin anytime between Tuesday and Friday, with Friday being a garunteed soft opening day.
