Boomerang Air Hockey is a new kind of air hockey table that allows players to play standing side-by-side. The table is much smaller than a traditional air hockey table and is designed for the puck to “boomerang” back around to the opposing player once it is struck.

The game provides a cool new twist on the always popular air hockey game. People rent Boomerang Air Hockey games because it is designed to save space, with most tables taking up about only about five square feet.

How You Play Boomerang Air Hockey

Air HockeyThe goal of Boomerang Air Hockey is the same as that for traditional air hockey. Players use a paddle to hit a round plastic puck that floats on a cushion of air that runs up through a perforated surface. It makes for smooth, fast action.

The difference with Boomerang Air Hockey is that players must use their paddle to hit the puck past a V-shaped plastic piece in the middle of the table. This requires angling your shot just right to get past the obstacle and to fly toward your opponent’s goal.

Speaking of the goals, they are bigger in Boomerang Air Hockey than they are in traditional air hockey. This means that players have a wider goal to guard, making the game more challenging both on offense and defense.

So, why rent a Boomerang Air Hockey table rather than a regular table? Size and portability. With the boomerang table, you can fit an exciting game into a very compact space. It’s not so big that it dominates your party.
