Design

This table offers a nice compromise between air hockey tables designed for kids and true full-sized models. The setup is suitable for kids, teens, and parents. A versatile table equipped with leg levelers, playfield aprons and top rails for an improved gaming experience, this is a table the whole family will love.

Featuring the type of sturdy construction that ensures this table lasts year after year, the innovative design gives this table the type of arcade style air hockey table feel that any air hockey enthusiast can appreciate.

The table’s high gloss playing surface features stadium graphics, bright lights, and sound effects, giving it the look and feel of a traditional air hockey table. Considering its size, you’ll need to learn how to clean an air hockey table prior to use. The large playing surface should be wiped down before use in order to prevent dirt, dust, and debris from settling into the air holes.

The table is equipped with full leg panel supports complete with top rails and reinforced playfield aprons. Both features will come in handy if the adults decide to play an intense fast-paced game. The table’s design prevents it from rocking and wobbling during use.

Electronic Scorer

When you think of a traditional arcade style table, the first thing that probably comes to mind are the bright lights and sound effects. Unlike competing models in this price range, this table is loaded with a large, vivid scorer that will give any room in the home that arcade feel that most air hockey table owners are looking for.

The electronic scorer also offers stadium sound effects and bright LED lights.

Leg Levelers

The built-in five-inch leg levelers will come in handy if you have shorter family members. The table can be lowered using each of the leg levelers, since each leg can be adjusted independently. While the levelers are designed to compensate for an uneven floor, if you have smaller children then the ability to lower the table is a nice bonus.

Power

This electronic model comes equipped with a powerful blower system at one hundred and twenty volts. While there haven’t been complaints regarding the power behind the table’s fan system, this voltage seems pretty low for a table of this size. However, the manufacturer claims the table features a top of the line blower system with a UL-certified powerful motor that blows a heavy consistent airflow throughout the surface of the table.

Dimensions

This table measures in at eighty inches by forty-two inches by thirty-two inches, weighing in at one hundred and twenty-five inches.

Extras

 

This model comes with all of the extras you need for a fun game of air hockey in the comfort of your own home. Inside the package, you’ll find a couple of pucks and two strikers. For replacements, you can order extra accessories straight from the manufacturer.

Performance

This model gives you the type of air hockey gaming experience you’ve been looking for in an affordable table for your family room. Weighing over one hundred pounds this table is not exactly portable and can easily take up a lot of space in the home.

The design itself is pretty basic compared to flashier models like the ESPN Air Hockey Game Table Indoor Arcade Gaming Set with Electronic Overhead Score System, which also comes in at four inches larger with longer leg levelers and more features and game extras. However, the ESPN model is almost twice the price of this MD Sports table. Additionally, the ESPN table has a better stability rating compared to this model. But if this table is mainly for family use, then this budget-friendly table is a better choice, especially if your home can’t accommodate a true full-sized table.
