What to Look For in an Air Hockey Table

Air Hockey Rules: How to Play and Tips to Win - Group ...


Are you looking for a way to up the ante in your man cave? Do you want to give all the kids something to look forward to when they have friends over? 

If so, then you need to purchase an air hockey table for your home. Doing so can give the entire family a fun event to play at any time. Imagine being able to play whenever you want!

But here's the trick: you have to find the right one for your situation. See below for an in-depth guide highlighting everything you should be looking for at an air hockey table.

Entertainment Value

Think back to whenever you were at an arcade as a kid; what was the one game you could've played over and over again?

We're willing to bet that, for a lot of you, air hockey was high on that list! Air hockey is fun because it's quick-paced, the games are short, and anyone has a chance to win. 

But allow us to challenge you with this: why stop at air hockey? What if we told you there was a way you could have a pool table as well?

Believe it or not, that dream can be turned into a reality with sets like our Fat Cat 2-in-1 Pool/Air Hockey Table.

If you love both games equally, why not spend a bit more to get both of them inside your home? The table can be flipped within seconds to feature air hockey or pool, whatever you're in the mood for!

The best part? It comes with everything that you need to play the games! That includes billiard balls and pool cues for the pool table and pucks and pushers for the air hockey table.

Of course, if you aren't interested in the pool, then the air hockey table will give your family hours of fun each night.


Let us know if this has happened to you before: you purchase a fun feature for your home, then find out that it's too big or too small for the area you intended.

That can put a major wrench in your plans. Now you have three choices: 1) deal with the awkward size, 2) put it in a different room than the one you intended, or 3) send it back.

Neither of the three options is ideal. That's why we encourage you to think about sizing from the get-go.

Fortunately, we've already thought of that for you. All of our air hockey tables are either 7' or 6' in size, making them the perfect size for almost any room.

If you purchase an air hockey table, you can set it up against the wall and still enjoy optimal gameplay. It also looks perfect next to a home bar or the side of an entertainment center. 

For those of you envisioning a specific area, grab a tape measure and get the dimensions for the space. That way, you can order it online with complete confidence.

The best part is that, with a 7' table, you can quickly move it to other areas to see which option you like best.

Elaborate Details

Imagine the horror of investing in an air hockey table and finding out that it doesn't live up to your standards.

Unfortunately, that could happen if you invest in a cheap air hockey table. If you go that route, that's what you'll get: an inferior product.

Instead, make sure you look into the details of your future air hockey table. Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you look through the product description:

  • Does the air hockey table have a voice response? 
  • Is the scoreboard digital? Does it have an LED scoreboard?
  • Does the air hockey table offer an unlimited game time mode to lower the pressure?
  • Is there a level feature anywhere in the table to ensure you that the playing field is level?
  • How many pucks and pushers does the air hockey table for sale come with?

A full-size air hockey table should give you an exciting game to look forward to each time. As you can see from the question we listed, even the slightest detail can ruin the fun.

Positive Reviews

We get it. If you're going to spend hundreds of dollars on an air hockey table, then you want to make sure it's worth the investment.

Fortunately, these days you can use online reviews to gauge whether you should buy it or not. These offer you feedback from unbiased clients who have purchased the air hockey table for their home or business.

When you read through the online customer reviews, be sure to ask yourself a few questions.

Do the customers seem satisfied with the product? Did they have a good experience with customer support? What was the checkout experience like? Is the air hockey table as high-quality as they were expecting?

Don't worry if there's one customer that had a bad experience. It shouldn't be an issue for you as long as it isn't a frequent theme among the different reviews.


Some feel silly considering the aesthetic of the air hockey table that they purchase, but it's an essential part of the experience.

The trick is to find an air hockey table that looks awesome but doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. That's why it's crucial to find one made of high-quality materials.

Make sure to observe the pictures on the seller's product page. Try to envision it in the area of your house that you want to put it; does it fit the vibe?

When you find the right air hockey table, it's sure to make your guests' jaws drop to the floor when they first lay eyes on it.
