You will then given a ticket for your picture and if you wish to purchase – a picture is at RM 25 and with Hello Kitty Go Round Frame is at RM 65.
Right upon entering the area, you will be pamper with game zone. A few games stall to kick start your mood as this is where you can start using your ticket.
Then the whole area is being section up and it will be at your own leisure to move into which direction.
Head down to Hello Kitty Memory Garden.
You can then next move into Hello Kitty Cafe where all coffee, snacks and meals are in Hello Kitty presentation.
I have 2 sexy buddy waiting together at bus station.
This area got us excited abit as we thought there was a ride, only then realise its a pre-gimmic of it.
This place is rather interesting – Hello Kitty Post Office

For another craft area, you can head to Kitty Totes where RM 28 you will get a tote bag, 4 different stamps. We believe you will end up spend at least RM 35 by adding more characters to make the tote bag more interesting.

In this photo zone, you can either snap a picture yourself then print in out at this Fujifilm box at a price.
Cinema was a slight let down where it just display a huge picture. Thought it might have a video that show Hello Kitty or a preview of this whole thing of Hello Kitty Go Round video among the regions.
Entry is free and do not need any tickets.
Among few workshops, I believe this will take up the longest time as its a picture that you are going to put some glitter items in it.
At official merchandise area, there are few items that certainly do capture my attention which is their collectables.
Clothes Stitch on. .
And this collectables and below are full list of their items.
Basically for me RM 45 is just an entrance to go in selfie and take pictures around with 1 or 2 game you can play. The rest it is really up to you as some of it you might have to spend.
