Apply's Funhouse was established by Ephraim Apply during the founding of Bumblyburg. The Funhouse's only known feature was checkers, which at that time tempted everybody to enter, and play for hours. While everyone was playing, no work was finished on building the colony.
But when Obadiah Bumbly came, he told Ephraim to leave the land, and destroyed the Funhouse. Ephraim Apply may not have returned, but his niece (who Ephraim may have raised instead of her parents for unknown reasons) took on the family business with better equipment and evolved temptation tecniqes.
