This is my favorite park in Orlando. The hulk is the best ride ever in my eyes. I love all the different themes as you walk round.

Hi Danielle, Great question! There are no minions roaming in Islands of Adventure. However, the Minions can be found in Universal Studios Florida. I hope this helps you plan your trip. Thank you for your question! -Tori
