Inflatable Air Hockey Table – Float and Play in Your Pool
Kids, where are you headed with the air hockey table? You’re going to put it in the pool? I don’t think that’s a great idea. After all, water and electricity never mix. Look, if you want to do that, just play on an inflatable air hockey table instead. I swear you’re taking years off my life with your schemes.
An inflatable air hockey table is a floating pool toy designed to bring the classic table game to your pool. Since there is no electricity involved for safety, pucks instead are shot over a slip ‘n slide style surface. The concept of the game is the same, though, except you can play in the water.
Bring your game room outside for summer fun with an inflatable air hockey table!
If you’ve ever wanted to bring the table games outside to enjoy the summer sun, then an inflatable air hockey table is right up your alley. This floating table is perfect for your pool, pond, or other relatively still body of water.
Just add air, and the tube around the rectangular game board inflates. In a few minutes, you’ll have a floating air hockey board. Unlike traditional air hockey tables, though, this one requires no electricity and doesn’t use air to power the pucks.
Instead, the included puck is shot back and forth over a slippery plastic surface. Much like you’d skid on a slip n’ slide, it’ll have no issue zinging back and forth as you whack it with the paddles.
The floating board is waterproof, but you’ll want a little water on the board to “grease things up” for the puck. However, don’t dump a ton of water into the board or your puck will find its way to the bottom of the pool.
Go head-to-head with your friends and family this summer, enjoying a game of pool air hockey. While it’s recommended for ages 5+, as an adult I still have tons of fun with it!
How do you play inflatable air hockey?
You play inflatable air hockey much like normal table-based air hockey:
- Wet the board slightly (just enough to help the puck slide)
- Each player grabs a paddle
- Hit the puck back and forth with the paddles, trying to land it in your opponent’s goal
- Earn one point for each goal
- The first player to 7 points wins
Feel free to adjust the number of points required for longer or shorter games, if preferred. It’s only a recommendation and not a hard and fast rule.
If you happen to launch the puck out of the game board that’s a foul. I keep a rule that the person who knocked it out must retrieve it from the bottom of the pool. Then, it becomes the other player’s puck to shoot!
