Sanario Hello Kitty Town @ Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park, Nusajaya
A few months back, I bought the deal coupon to go to Hello Kitty Land in Johor together with my friends at $69.90 per pax from deal.com.sg.
The package includes the following:
- 2-way Air-Conditioned Coach (45-Seater)
- Hello Kitty Town Entrance Pass
- Little Big Park Entrance Pass
- Dinner at Chinese Restaurant
- Guide Service
- Group Insurance
We were told by the agent to meet at Newton Food Centre at 8.30am. My friends and I met earlier so that we could have our breakfast before departing to Malaysia. However, there was a delay and our coach only arrived around 9+am.
We passed by Legoland before reaching the Hello Kitty Town. Both themeparks are located very near to each other, about 5 minutes drive away.
Disappointment #1 :(
There are currently many websites showing the Hello Kitty Land with a ferris wheel in an outdoor themepark. That photo is really misleading and it was that photo that "tricked" me into thinking that Hello Kitty Town was a big themepark, both indoor and outdoor. In actual fact, Hello Kitty Land and the Little Big Park are both indoor themepark located in this boring building.
We went on 26 Oct 2012, the tentative date of official launch when we were doing the booking. However, they postponed the official launch to 10 November.
We reached around 11am and the entrance area was super crowded. We decided to go to the 3rd and 4th level to the Little Big Club first since almost all the crowds were at Level 2 Hello Kitty Town. I will blog about it in a separate blog post.
Upon admission, you will get this activity card. There are altogether 7 activities at Hello Kitty Town and for every activity completed, you will get a stamp. According to the guide, after you got 7 stamps, you can exchange for another gift. However, I don't think it is possible to get all the 7 stamps even if you reach there at 10am when it just open. For every activity, there will be a long queue and by around 3.45pm, they will stop you from joining the queue already. Also, for one of the activities, you will need to spend more $$ to purchase the materials required to make the Hello Kitty Doll.
The Hello Kitty Town is at level 2 of the 4-storey building. This is the entrance to the Hello Kitty Town. We came here after our lunch on the 4th level at around 1.30pm.
Hello Kitty Teacups
Queues, Queues everywhere!!!
We decided to go to the "Hello Kitty House" first.
Then, our second and last activity at Hello Kitty Town is this "Hello Kitty Black Wonder". I won't reveal too much details for this here otherwise it won't be fun for you.
Basically, you have a task to complete here - To find the passcode that will save Hello Kitty!!
My progress report after completing the Hello Kitty Black Wonder - "B".
Mascot Parade and dance.
After watching the Mascot parade and dance, we decided to view our photos taken by the professional and hurried to level 1, where we could find the merchandise shop and a little cafe.
Only managed to get 2 stamps :(
We got 6 photos for RM 140.
Level 1 merchandise shop
We decided to take a short rest at the Red Bow Cafe whilst waiting for our coach to arrive at 5.15pm.
The food - According to my friends, nothing fanciful.
I only ordered a cup of coffee as we will be heading for dinner next.
Met my new little friend, Amelia here with her Hello Kitty cookie made at the cookie studio when we were resting at the cafe at Level 1.
