With the persistent and constant pleas from Crystabel to visit Hello Kitty Town, we finally made our across the causeway during the Labour Day long weekend – and made sure that this theme park was part of our itinerary.
We went there on a Sunday, just before heading back to Singapore that day. Figured out that we needed a day to rest before going back to our usual work/school schedule.
The queue for the ticketing counter was considerable long, but it moved quite quickly too.
But not to worry – if you or the kids ever feel hungry halfway through, there is the Red Bow Cafe located at the ticketing area which serves drinks and light finger food like cakes, breads, pastries and sandwiches. With this being a theme park, do expect to pay double the price for items you would normally find in a regular bakery though.
Which park to choose?
What’s great about this theme park is that everything is based indoors, so you get to escape the sweltering heat. Basically, there are two “themes” to the place which gives you options for ticketing: you can either choose to visit Hello Kitty, Thomas Town (which includes Thomas the Train and other characters such as Angelina Ballerina, Pingu, Bob the Builder and Barney), or go for the All Park Pass which gives you access to both park at a great value.
Prices for the tickets are as follows:
If you are Malaysian, you get a 20% discount if you flash your IC. Singaporeans and all other nationalities pay regular rates. Free entry for kids below 90cm.
Tickets can also be purchased online here.
Since Crystabel was keen on the “cat without a mouth” only, we went for the Hello Kitty pass.
We were given an activity card each, which will be stamped each time we complete an activity. Each cardholder can only go for a single activity once – which makes me question if the ticket is worth the price. Most theme parks which we have been to in the past do not have such limitations, so we were able to go on our favourite rides numerous times!
Exploring the place
Expect to be immersed in a sea of pink!
There are a few stations nicely spread out on that one floor, where you can either do an activity, enjoy a ride or view Hello Kitty memorabilia and furnishings.
We did the tea cup ride first, as the little one just couldn’t resist…and we saw that the queue was not too long.
Soon, it was time for the stage performance where Hello Kitty and other mascots and performers made an appearance.
For this one, Hello Kitty did a dance with the performers, and after that the performers got the kids together to dance to the music.
