Sanrio has just announced plans to open a Hello Kitty theme park in Vietnam, set to launch in 2021 in partnership with local property firm BRG Group. At the reveal, Sanrio showcased plans on building a 30,000-square-meter-wide indoor Sanrio Hello Kitty World in Hanoi, adjacent to the capital city’s West Lake.

The park set to open its doors in 2021 will feature gaming and ride attractions, as well as a theatre, dining locations and retail stores, featuring mainly Sanrio’s popular feline character as well as other favorites like My Melody and Pompompurin. “We want to provide experience-oriented programs such as transport safety and cooking to enhance creativity even among relatively older children,” said BRG President Nguyen Thi Nga at the event.

As of now, there’s yet no official date as to when the park will open, but it is set to be in 2021. At present, Sanrio is operating five Sanrio theme parks abroad in China, South Korea and Malaysia, as well as two in its home country Japan.
