The opening of China’s biggest Hello Kitty amusement park is scheduled for January 1, and it is a lot of look. Warning: viewers with a strong aversion to kitties, the color pink and all things kawaii (you sick bastards) should not click on the following post.
The Hello Kitty Home will be located in Zhejiang province’s Anji county and will feature 11 Hello Kitty facilities, including a luxury resort decked out with plush pink furniture, chandeliers, and bows. So many bows.
The amusement park will host Hello Kitty-themed performances, parades and features a decorated Ferris Wheel, along with movies, shops and catering services. If you’re not puking up pools of pink ectoplasm by the end of the trip, you’re doing it wrong.
And in case you were wondering, there will be a Hello Kitty mahjong room.
Japan’s Sanrio Corporation teamed up with Zhejiang New Insight Leisure Tourism Development Co., Ltd. for the (estimated) 215 million USD project, which will be the bobtail cat’s (confusion still remains over whether or not she is indeed a cat) first major home outside of Japan—opening just in time for the character’s 40th birthday (well, slightly belated).
The theme park is expected to attract up to 1 million visitors per year, and will be a strong contender against Shanghai Disneyland’s Toy Story-themed hotel as the Cutest Place To Exist in China.
Tickets to the Kitty Home will cost 200 RMB for children and 260 RMB for adults, while weekends will be a bit more expensive.
