BUFFALO, NY -- How do you top a hit game like Quad Air, the four-player air hockey table from Barron Games International? For Baron, the answer is "think small with a big idea." The big idea in a small package is Air Ride, set to make its debut at the upcoming IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, FL, this month.

air hockey, Barron Games The new table game was produced in response to operators who could not place Quad Air because of its height and size restrictions. Air Ride has no over overhead scoreboard, but offers the same features as Quad Air, explained Barron Games' Greg Bacorn. "The only difference, other than size, is it is not a four-player table," he said.

Replacing Quad Air's overhead scoreboard on Air Ride is a backlit LED scorekeeper embedded under the clear polycarbonate on the playfield. Both games have the long-lasting polycarbonate scratch-resistant playfield, along with LED lighting around the table's perimeter and all-aluminum body construction.

Air Ride measures 87" long x 46" wide x 36" high and weighs 350 lbs., compared with Quad Air specs of 91" long x 91" wide x 36" high, and 720 lbs.

Both air hockey games support ticket redemption service. In redemption mode, two-player Air Ride awards tickets to the winner, with a lesser amount going to the loser.
