Sanrio Hello Kitty Town In JB Is Closing Its Doors Due To Lack Of Visitors
Hello Kitty is a part of many of our childhood memories and it may even be your children’s favourite cartoon character.
But we are sad to announce that the Sanrio Hello Kitty Town in Johor Bahru will be closing its doors soon.
According to Oriental Daily, the Sanrio Hello Kitty Town located in Johor Bahru is slated to close for good on 31 Dec 2019 due to a lack of tourists.
The Sanrio Hello Kitty Town was built in 2012 and cost RM100 million (S$33 million). However, since it’s opening, it has seen a decline in visitors every year.
The small town is filled with many Hello Kitty-themed activities that will keep you and your kids occupied.
And if you’re going with a special someone, there are plenty of Insta-worthy spots for the 2 of you. Here are some of the attractions.
1.Hello Kitty interactive games
Become a hero and listen to Oz’s call for help. This attraction offers visitors a chance to solve puzzles in the maze of Oz alongside Hello Kitty and save the land from evil forces.
2. Tea Cup Ride
This ride lets you and your child enjoy the experience spinning inside a Hello Kitty decorated cup around the room.
It’s nothing like a roller-coaster but you know what they say, somethings are better enjoyed slow.
3. Dream Photo Garden
Take a photo with the cute Hello Kitty Mascots in this pretty attraction. The aesthetic pink pavilion makes for a ‘pur-fect’ background.
40-minute drive from Woodlands checkpoint
The town isn’t very far away. It’s only a 40-minute drive from Woodlands Checkpoint.
The tickets go for RM95 (S$31) per person, which you can get here. If you consider yourself a true fan of the dolled-up feline, better head down before the end of the year.
