The popularity of this Sanrio character has warranted a theme park to be dedicated to it. Johor's Hello Kitty Town is the first Hello Kitty theme park outside of Japan. It features various Hello Kitty rides, walkthrough attractions, and interactive activities.
Highlights at the park include Black Wonder, a stateoftheart interactive experience, and Kitty House, a complete Hello Kitty house, with living room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen.
Friendship Land features a playground, where the little ones can enjoy the tea cup rides and have their photos taken with Hello Kitty and friends, and there are also live performances at
the park’s ‘Purrfect’ stage.
Other attractions include the Wishful Studio, where visitors can get involved with jewelry and costume making, and then dress up at the photo studio, and there’s even a nail salon where
fans can decorate their nails with Hello Kitty art. In addition, visitors can make Hello Kitty shaped cookies at the park’s Cookie Studio.
Sanrio Hello Kitty Town is located at Puteri Harbour, close to the Legoland Resort, so a trip to both theme parks can be enjoyed in one day. Many choose to visit as part of a tour package, including transport and entry into several theme parks in the area.
