With Stratosphere in the name, there are so many puns that could’ve been used in this product’s description.

Even if the opportunity wasn’t seized, let’s see how this product stacks up - is it worth your money?

It certainly looks good…

...and there are things we want to praise about this Hathaway.

The support structure is not the best in the world, but unless you abuse the table you should have fun games for a long period of time.

The playing surface is, again, not ice-smooth, but does its job.

Underneath the table…

...you’ll find a decent motor, that we had no notable problems with. Granted, there were portions (especially around the corners) that weren’t always aired properly, but nothing game-breaking.

All in all, it’s a fun experience.

Where this product truly shines,

Is the extra features. We just had a memory trip everytime we used it, because of the LED lights, the music, sound effects, electronic scoring - it all brought up fun times from the past.

The only thing missing was the overhead scoring panel.

Notable issues? There were some.

As you get going with this Hathaway, you’ll notice it’s extremely heavy, even for a 7.5-foot table. That’s not a huge deal, but the real struggle begins when you try to assemble it - instructions are unclear, and there are a lot of components that don’t seem to fit anywhere.

If you don’t manage to assemble it on your own…

...you’ll stumble across the last issue we want to mention - customer support. It’s really hard to come in contact with Hathaway, and when you do end up with one of their representatives, they’re not extremely helpful.

Neither of these issues is a deal-breaker but corroborated with the already meh table, they pull the score down quite a bit.

Features:

  • 7.5-foot arcade-style table
  • Plug-in motor
  • Electronic scoring
