Baxter Bay's Mystery Funhouse was built in 1890 by Bayville's founder, flamboyant carnival
entrepreneur Bennett Balthazar Bay. It was the last project he worked on before his death in 1899.
At the time of its design the Funhouse was considered a marvel of modern technology and was the centerpiece of B.B. Bay's Carnival of Wonders.
The original fun house clown was Bennett Bay's younger brother Baxter. He made quite a name for
himself in the early days of vaudeville and even performed for some of the crowned heads of Europe.
Part of his act involved bizarre gadgets that would shock and astonish his audience. Baxter passed
away in 1910 doing what he loved – performing onstage.
In 1969 control of the Funhouse was given to Baxter's great grandson, Benjamin. Donning the guise
of his ancestor's famous role, Benjamin made nightly appearances at the Funhouse. But there was
always something strange about Benjamin and rapidly the Funhouse itself began to get stranger and stranger. What will you find? Step right up and discover for yourself what is waiting inside The Mystery Funhouse.
