Hello Kitty in Oz has arrived in Malaysia! The attraction in SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN will officially open its doors to the public on the 31st of October 2015, in Puteri Harbour, Nusajaya, Johor. Hello Kitty in Oz is the latest themed attraction in SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN, which is the first theme park of its kind outside of Japan. It features a themed setting that evokes childhood memories of the beloved children’s classic, ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ by author L. Frank Baum, and of course, Hello Kitty.
In conjunction with the opening of the attraction, SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN also announced the opening of the ‘Oz World Alley’, a retail outlet carrying an exclusive line of Hello Kitty in Oz collectible merchandise that is only available in SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN, Puteri Harbour, Nusajaya.
Hello Kitty in Oz: The Lost Chapter takes place after Dorothy defeats the Wicked Witch and returns home. There have been widespread rumours that the Land of Oz is ending and Hello Kitty the Great Witch is very worried. In a decision made with a heavy heart, she removes a chapter from the Great Book of Oz hoping to alter the ending. However, her actions proved to be detrimental as the Emerald City Machine malfunctions and Oz is plunged into chaos. To help her on her quest to save Oz, she calls on her brave heroes to band together to save Oz.
The Hello Kitty in Oz attraction features four interactive games that will help Hello Kitty and her Heroes of Oz save the magical Land. These games are suitable for both children and adults, containing aspects that appeal to all ages, challenging children, entertaining adults, and creating special moments that are unique only at SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN. Guests will begin their journey in the company of the Librarian before moving on to face their inner fears in the Mirror Maze. The Oz Guardians will also be present at every game to enhance the experience and help guests along.
“I am very honoured and thrilled that Hello Kitty in Oz is finally here at SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a timeless classic that has brought joy and magic to countless lives and to have it adapted to Hello Kitty is truly something to celebrate. This will be a permanent addition to SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN, and I am sure that this will be an experience that will excite children and adults alike as this is the only Hello Kitty in Oz attraction in the world,” said Fahruddin Najumudeen, General Manager of SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN and The Little Big Club.
