Where indoor and outdoor games are concerned, Triumph is one of the world’s leading manufacturers. They’re known for producing high quality, exciting games that can keep the whole family entertained. Air hockey tables are one of the products they are most well-known for, and they produce several versions of the product.
Quick Tip: The Lumen-X is one of their high-end tables, featuring a stylish exterior that would look great in any games parlor.
Features That Make It Stand Out
Because air hockey tables are quite large, there is some assembly required. Fortunately, Triumph makes this process as easy as possible.
The legs ship flat-packed into a recessed area of the table. All you need to do is remove them, and attach them to the base using four bolts. The entire process only takes a few minutes, and the visual guide makes it easy to find the mounting points.
The Build Quality
Once we’d set ours up, we couldn’t help but be impressed with the build quality. Any active game like this is going to experience a lot of wear and tear, so it’s essential that something like this is designed correctly. There is a lot of plastic siding that gives the table it’s stylish look, but underneath you’ll find a sturdy wood foundation. The table doesn’t shake or wobble at all while set up, so we don’t foresee any problems with it wearing out over time.
- When you plug it in, the table comes to life.
- The edges of the play area light up with an ice-blue LED strip.
- This makes for a fun, engaging environment, especially with the lights off.
- There is a large digital score board in the center, so you can focus on enjoying your game and not keeping score.
- The lights flash and sounds play when one player scores – Just like at a real hockey game!
Pro Tip: If you’re getting this for your kids, you might not want the bright lights and loud sounds on at all times. A control panel on the back allows you to disable these features. The fan itself is surprisingly quiet, so the table can be used discreetly when necessary.
With poorly made tables, the gaming experience can suffer. Improperly sized fans cause uneven airflow, causing the puck to shift or fly off the table when hit too hard. The engineers did a pretty good job at directing the airflow, so we found the playing experience to be reliable and engaging.
The Dual Blower Motors
A lot of this had to do with the dual motor blowers included. It’s very challenging to take the air from one fan and divide it up equally over the play area, so having dual fans improves air flow while reducing noise. The lip of the table is a little larger than some, so it’s unlikely that the puck will fly off during normal play.
Even the accessories included with the table are above standard. The two strikers are large and easy to hold. They’re made from a single injection molded piece of plastic, keeping them sturdy and lightweight.
Three pucks are included. The main puck is made from transparent plastic, and lights up when hit. This makes the game much more engaging, and matches the lighting system of the table. We all know how kids tends to lose things, so there are two standard pucks included as back up.
- Measuring 72 x 40 x 31 inches, this table is definitely on the larger side.
- Personally, we prefer larger tables as they create a more enjoyable gaming experience.
- But not everyone is going to have room in their home for such a large table.
If you’re converting your basement or garage into a games room, an uneven floor can be quite a concern. There are four screw-out levelers included on the legs of the table, so you can get the play area flat. This prevents puck drift and keeps the game fair, something we look for in a high-quality table.

Both the lights, the score board, and the puck help this table stand out from the competition.
With the large play area, players have a lot more control over the direction and speed of the puck, making for a much more engaging game.
The control panels gives you the choice between a bright, loud gaming experience, or a nice quiet background game that won’t disturb other occupants.
The dual blower motors give the table an even airflow, allowing experienced players to get better control over the puck.
Most importantly, it comes at a very reasonable price – allowing you to get a high-quality game without breaking the bank.
Planning to surprise your kids with this air hockey table? Make sure it’s delivered when they’re not around! The box very clearly shows the product, so It’s not going to be easy to hide.
