How To Buy An Air Hockey Table
Air hockey is a bona fide game room classic. And an air hockey table is a great way to take your rec room to the next level.
There’s plenty of ways to bring your hockey game indoors. Compact tables are designed for small spaces, while full-size tables are great for aggressive play. For versatility, try a tabletop hockey game or one specially made for kids. And the latest tables come with arcade-style features for maximum fun.
Shop air hockey tables from brands including Franklin®, DMI Sports® and others.
Think about these factors when selecting your new air hockey game:
Materials: Some tables are built with a sturdy wood or wood laminate construction. More compact tables are built with plastic. Higher-end air hockey tables typically have an acrylic air-top playing surface. Consider the size, materials and look of your table before incorporating it into your game room.
Skill Level: For kids, you might try a compact air hockey game that’s both size and age appropriate. Smaller tables can typically accommodate one or two players, while more can play on full-size tables. A tabletop game is a great fit for casual air hockey players or where space is especially limited.
Extra features: Some tables come with electronic or LED scoring displays, while others have manual scoreboards. More advanced tables are equipped with arcade-style puck returns. Most tables come with pushers and pucks—so you’re ready to play.
Choose between a tabletop game and a traditional air hockey game. Tabletop games are placed on existing tables or surfaces—they’re great for those who want to bring the game along to a party or pack up when the fun is over. More permanent air hockey tables can become a central fixture of your game room.
