New Minion Land

Construction for the upcoming Minion Land is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2022.

The new zone will see multiple rides, including an immersive motion-simulator 3D ride with a hyper-realistic projection system.

Themed shops and restaurants are in the works as well.

The new attraction is under Resorts World Sentosa's expansion plan announced in 2019, known as RWS 2.0.

RWS 2.0. aims to "reinvigorate Singapore’s tourism" in a post-pandemic future with new attractions and entertainment and lifestyle offerings.

Another attraction to look forward to is the Super Nintendo World, hopefully opening by 2025.
