SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN at Puteri Harbour, Johor is the first themed attraction in the world outside of Japan since it first opened the doors in 2012.

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 something that we can truly celebrate. This will be a permanent addition to Sanrio Hello Kitty Town and I am sure 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.”
Yes, indeed, we are excited and can’t wait to start our exploration!
Hello Kitty in Oz takes place after Dorothy defeats the Wicked Witch and returned home. There has been widespread rumours that the Land of Oz is ending and Hello Kitty, the Great Wizard of Oz is very worried.
In a decision made with a heavy heart, she removes a chapter from the Great Book of Oz hoping to change the ending. However, her actions had proved to be detrimental as the Emerald City Machine malfunctions, as a result, Oz was plunged into chaos.
To help Dorothy, together with her friends, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion and the Tin Man, visitors are invited to join them as Heroes of Oz in an adventure to help The Great Wizard save Oz from chaos!
There are four challenges to complete. Upon entering, we were given the help of Hello Kitty aka the Great Wizard of Oz, an electronic device which is used to record our results after completing each challenge.
Once we received our Wizard, we proceed to a briefing session by the Librarian of Oz before we can begin on our magical quest. At every challenge/game, the Oz Guardians will be around to help us complete the mission.
After the briefing, we have to find our way and pass through a mirror maze successfully before starting our challenges. There are four interactive challenges/games to accomplish. Visitors have to complete all four interactive activities in order to help Hello Kitty the Great Wizard to save Oz.
The first challenge is Kuromi’s Tent.
At Kuromi’s Tent, Kuromi the Fortune Teller will read your fate with her cards. It is a memory card game and you are given 15 seconds to remember the sequence of the 6 cards reflected on the computer. After that, you have to arrange the cards correctly in the same order to complete your mission. Each challenge, you only have one chance to do it correctly.
The second challenge is Wood Factory. Over here, you are required to chop wood in order to pass the test.
This challenge is not too difficult, follow the instructions on the screen closely and responds correctly to how many times each piece of wood need to be chopped.
The third challenge is the Corn House. You are required to roast the corn and make sure the fire is just nice so that your corn is tasty and that it will not be burnt but in a nice golden colour.
You have to concentrate on controlling your fire by following the instruction on the screen to wave your hand accordingly over the “fire” to ensure that your corn is cooked perfectly in order to pass the test.
Last challenge is at Emerald City. Participants have to pay close attention to put the alphabets into the right hat.
The Emerald City challenge can be a bit tricky but manageable and our team member managed to pass all the challenges successfully.
After you have completed all the challenges, you will retrieve your results from the Hello Kitty device.
Upon completing all four activities with at least three of them completed successfully at one go. You will be rewarded for restoring the Land of Oz back to order and bring back a postcard containing your results as a souvenir.
The challenges/games are fun and suitable for both adults and children. Estimated time to complete all the activities is about 20 minutes.
While you are completing the challenges at The Lost Chapter, don’t forget to take lots of pictures at Munchkin Village where you’ll get to meet Strawberry King and his angels and with My Melody, Little Twin Stars, Hello Kitty dressed as the Scarecrow and many more.
