My headcanon shall now state that the impetus for the funhouse closing was a new Chuck E. Cheese's opening down the road.

I like how an SCP pretty much neutralized itself because it lacked purpose. Also, that note at the end, all of my feels.
Now if only 682 thought like this SCP…
But 682 does have a purpose, it just happens to be kill all humans.
Instances of SCP-821 varied in appearance and gender, but were shown to be humanoid automatons composed out of painted copper.
I think you mean "instances of SCP-821-1." The sentence as a whole is a little awkward to me, honestly. Is it like, they thought they were organic living beings, but found out later that they were just machines?
Edit: Either way, it's not bad, but it doesn't quite capture me. No vote for now, perhaps I'll warm up to it later.
Perhaps "midway games" should be "Midway brand arcade games"?
In any case, excellent work.
No, there are midway games, which are general games one would play on the midway at a fair, like skeeball, a shooting gallery, and the like, which is completely unrelated to Midway, the game company that used the general term "midway games" to make a joke name then went out of business.
Why is my headcannon telling me that Mr. Funland, after the failure of this business, went on to get a doctorate degree?
Mr. Funland sat down and let out a heavy sigh, his decision placing a huge burden on his mind. He still couldn't believe that after all these years he simply had to shut down the park. That park was his dream, his legacy! What was he supposed to do from now on? He knew he was going to eventually go back into business, but for what?
Another park? Maybe in the future, but right now it doesn't seem likely.
Books? Eh, he's never really been one for writing.
…actually…that's not a bad idea. The toys were one of the most popular elements of the park. Even the most jaded and stoic kids cracked a smile when they laid eyes on a Funland Fantasy Figurine, even if it's charm existed only in their imaginations.
Funland stood up, confident he was on the right path now. Yes! He would start making toys! But not just any toys, oh no! He'd make the most wonderful, most unique toys this world had ever seen, possibly even this universe had ever seen! They would invoke the most basic, most primal elements of whimsy and fantasy into the hearts of children, just as his beloved park once did.
But he couldn't call himself Mr. Funland anymore. It wouldn't flow well on toy labels, and frankly it was just another reminder of a shattered dream that would always drag him back to the past. No! He had to start fresh! He would have to think of something better, something unique. A name that invoked feelings of wonder and entertainment.
The best part of this(to me) is that cryogen actually created Dr. Wondertainment.
Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!
