Time Out Amusements is family-owned and operated by Tom Large. Tom started in business after attending Ohio State upon his return from combat rescue as a USAF Pararescueman in Vietnam. His first store was an Ohio State tradition on campus called "The Carnival Shop," which opened in 1969. It was the first video arcade in Columbus and provided sweets and treats to OSU students.

Tom provided 13 years of entertainment at the Ohio State Fair, entertaining the masses with arcades, concession stands and T-shirt sales.

Following his years at the fair, Tom opened many arcades around Columbus, and was the key amusement vendor for Wyandot Lake for the next 12 years.

With the rise of technology, and the popularity of home gaming systems, Time Out diversified into a full service event company.  Tom wanted to build a company that bridged the gap between small carnival games, and big fair rides. Time Out Amusements has succeeded in providing an extensive entertainment service for local events in the community.

Time Out Amusements has been involved with special events for almost 25 years, catering to corporate events, family picnics, church functions, after proms, festivals, birthday parties and more!
