  • Universal has been throwing out hints that point to a new Minions attraction

​If you missed your chance to say goodbye, you can read our farewell, here.

Before the long-running attraction shuttered, many theme park fans wondered what would replace it.

While Universal has not made an official announcement yet, it seems to be throwing out plenty of hints. 

Shrek 4-D is now surrounded by construction walls that feature images of Minions, the yellow, banana-loving creatures from the "Despicable Me" films.

Universal did something similar when it was building Jurassic VelociCoaster—putting the Jurassic World logo on the walls around the construction site before ever announcing anything official.  

In the days leading up to Shrek 4-D’s closure, Universal used its Twitter account to hint what could be replacing it by posting photos of half-eaten bananas in different places around the park. 

Could a Minions-inspired attraction be on the way? Again, nothing official has been released by Universal. So we'll just have to wait and see. 

If a Minions attraction does replace Shrek 4-D, it would mark the second attraction at the park to feature the creatures. Universal currently has a "Despicable Me" attraction at Universal Studios — just across from the Shrek 4-D building.
