Hello Kitty Town in Johor, 1st outside Japan7 August 2012, By Asia One
If your kids are not tall enough to meet the minimum height requirements for the rides at Universal Studios Singapore, hop across the Causeway.
Malaysia is offering an option for families with young children: The Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park.
Located in Nusajaya, Johor, the park - set to open in mid-November - is a 20-minute drive from the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link at Tuas, and is 10 minutes from Legoland Malaysia.
Themed Attractions and Resorts managing director and chief executive Ahmad Burhanuddin calls the park "an ideal destination for a short weekend getaway, for some quality time together".
One of its key attractions is the Sanrio Hello Kitty Town, which is the first Hello Kitty theme park outside Japan.
Fans can look forward to a high-tech experience at the park's Black Wonder attraction and its interactive activities.
Another park feature is The Little Big Club, which will have a series of rides and activities with themes relating to international cartoon characters, such as Bob The Builder and Barney.
To wrap up a day of fun, families can enjoy a meal at Lat's Place, a restaurant which will bring illustrator Mohd Nor Khalid's famed Kampung Boy character to life.
Tickets for either Hello Kitty Town or The Little Big Club cost RM65 (S$26) each, while Combo tickets to both attractions cost RM85. To purchase, visit www.tar.com.my/PuteriHarbour
