In today's tough economic climate, there's one job opportunity that offers excellent benefits, long-term career stability and a corporate environment that promotes teamwork and creativity. That job? Supervillain minion.

And now you too can apply for this amazing career path simply by attending Universal Studios Orlando's new seminar/thrill ride, "Despicable Me's Minion Mayhem."

Who says the stimulus package didn't work?

Of course, with theme park competition being as fierce as ever, it's no surprise that Universal Orlando has announced a whole slew of changes and updates for the new year, including several sweet new rides and attractions. it is a bit of a surprise, though, that the list is topped not by Universal Orlando's "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" but by this new "Despicable Me" ride.

So just what can parkgoers expect to experience when they hop aboard "Despicable Me's Minion Mayhem?" Well, according to slashFilm, the ride, which replaces "Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast" (sorry, Nicktoon fans!), will "take guests through “training” and then through an interactive dance party."

And "Despicable Me's Minion Mayhem" isn't the only big attraction coming to the park; there will also be a new, updated 3-D edition of the "Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man" ride, now featuring a special cameo by Stan Lee himself. And the park will mark "100 Years of Movie Memories" with a special water show narrated by Morgan Freeman.

Being a minion never sounded so fun.
