High Score- See Sick Score 2. Pro Score- See Sick Score 3. Sick Score- 250,000- Alright, this one's not so easy, it requires quite a bit of skills to complete. First, make sure you can easily perform your skater's special grind (or buy one that you can). Here goes: Wallride/Wallie up to the wall surrounding the park and grind it. Ollie, Flip, Grind, then ollie over the park entrance and do a special grind all the way to the end, or as long as possible. Ollie off and manual to a quarterpipe to finish off the trick.

Ollie into the pit and get air off the q-pipe. Grind up the sculpture backwards, ollie, grind again, and ollie off it. Turn around exactly 180 degrees, and head back, ollie (or boneless) and grind that sucker all the way down, without holding any d-pad button!! 8. Wrangle the Cow- This can get confusing, so here's a pic of the cow area. /\ */C \% / O \ \ W / %\ /* \/ *-Ollie from the star to the other star to get the Blue Cow gap. %-Ollie from the percent to the other percent to get the Moo Cow gap. Finally, grind the cow in any direction to get the Steer Clear transfer and "Wrangle the Cow." A helpful hint- When grinding the cow, If you go over it, try ollieing with less speed, and if you go too low, get more speed or boneless. 9. Get the Secret Tape- Ah. The one that seperates the men from the boys. Here's EXACTLY how I get the tape, it works almost every time. Head towards the kickers in the back of the level. Ollie off the one on the left and wallride. Wallie at the height of the grind and hold B. You should land on a rail. Ollie, kickflip, and grind again to build up speed. When you see the end of the rail, hold Left, Ollie, Wallride, Wallie, and hopefully land on the electric sign. Pull a kick trick and grind again to build speed (you need it) When you see the end of the sign, hold left. Ollie, wallride, and at the highest point wallie and land on the fire escape. You should have enough speed to grind an inch or two up it and grab the tape. Then, fall to your death below, or if you need the sick score, land and manual to a quarterpipe. 10. 100% Goals and Cash $100- Ollie off a q-pipe in the upper right of the level into the pit below to grab the hundred. $100- This is on the electric sign on the way to the secret tape (see above) $100- On Joey's Sculpture $100- In the park, build up speed and ollie over the water, grab the 100. It doesn't matter if you fall in. $50- In the middle of the pit. $50- Grind and wallride the benches under the electric sign. $50- Make a right on the road at the crossing, and follow it to the end. Wallride/Wallie to grab the 50 that's high up in the air. $50- Between the rail and the bench near the entrance to the park in the back of the level. --Skatestreet, Ventura-- Go for the GOLD!! You'll need around 100,000 for each run to get gold. Here's some decent gold winning combos. Boneless, flip, and manual off the starting rollin. Grind the rail to the left, manual, and do a flip and hold a grab off the q-pipe. Then, turn around and ollie off the same q-pipe in the direction of the very small halfpipe. Hold a grab, but when you're about to hit the ground hold B to land in a grind on the small halfpipe. Do some grind/flip trick/grind again until you reach the end. Ollie and manual into the pipe and pull a flip/hold grab off the pipe. That's a good 150,000 if done perfectly with a special grind... 100% Goals and Cash $50- Grind the rail to the left of the starting rollin and ollie when you get to it. $50- In the small halfpipe area in the back corner $50- Above the Hex-box in the middle of Skatestreet. $50- In the pool behind your starting position. $50- Go straight from the start and make a left after going up the small ramp $100- Gain some speed in the large halfpipe and boneless out of it, away from the pool, to get this. $100- Go off the q-pipe that juts out from the rest near the big hole (that functions as a halfpipe.) $100- In the upper right corner of the level past the huge quarterpipe a.k.a.

SPECIAL STAGE-BOSTON ROOFTOPS- There are no objectives to this level. Congratulations on unlocking it, it's TOUGH TO DO! Have fun! **Gaps** I'll begin the gap Guide with the hardest ones, the Line gaps. For the rest, see the great gap FAQ by Sephy Kid, also on this site. (which I helped with, on a few of the lines.) I found all of these lines on my own, so don't say I copied them. Hangar lines-1. HP to Chopper Line- Ollie over the pipe to get the "Over the Pipe Gap." Manual to the QPs on the far wall. Grind the pipe towards the barrier separating the level and ollie off afterwards. Manual and grind the Chopper's blades. School II lines-2.

Grind each bench, getting the "3 Bench Grind" gap. Finally, manual out of the courtyard area to complete the line. Planter to TC's Line- There are several ways to get this line, but here's the way I get it. Boneless to the planter at the start of the level. Ollie off it and down the Nightmare Rail. Manual all the way to the kicker and boneless onto TC's roof. Tough? Yeah, but it's doable. Marseille Lines-2 Marseillaise Line- Wallride up to the building to get the Dumpster Stomp gap. Manual and grind the rail going around the perimeter of the level. Grind each of these rails until you get to the other side of the level. Grind the dumpster there to complete the line.

Follow the steps to get it, but at the end tap B and hope you land. Walk in the Park- Grind the rail at the back entrance of the park. Ollie to the bench, then to the rail by the water. Ollie and manual out of the park at the entrance close to where you start to finish the line. Skatestreet Lines-2 Twin Rail to QP Line- Grind one of the rails under the pool.

Land on the rail heading towards the deep HP. Manual and ollie into it, then get air off the inside of it to finish the gap. Rooftops Lines-1 Beantown Line- Go left at the start and grind the rail on top of the QP to the skater's left. Get the Don't Look Down Gap and the Schmock Gap. Ollie to the other roof and get the Roof to Roof gap and the Insane Landing gap by landing in a manual. See that QP straight ahead? Grind the top of it all the way up the wire.

A manual is performed by tapping up, down or down, up before landing a trick that is not on a quarter or half pipe. Now, you may be saying that manuals slow you down too much? Well, here's the trick: You never stay in a manual for more than a second! Right after you land, ollie, do a flip trick (usually up+L) and land in another manual. You'll actually gain speed, and your balance will barely waver. The same is true with grinds. All good combos are finished with a 540 or 720 flip trick+hold grab (until you are about to land) off a 1/4 or 1/2 pipe. Skating Switch- When you're switch, your tricks and combos are slightly harder to land, and grinds are harder to balance (this all depends on your Switch stat, BTW) but, in return, you get more points for a trick done switch. **Advanced Strategies** Look for gaps to add into your combos for the high scores. For example, on the School II, Grind the rails in front of the gym to get a gap, then turn around and grind the picnic tables for another gap. Don't forget to end each combo with a huge trick off a QP! **Expert Strategies** What's the last step to high scores? Specials. Yes, they're there for a reason and they really rack up the high scores. Practice using left-right and up-down combinations until you get the hang of them, then go all out. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Million Point Strategies ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Eventually, I hope to have one of these for every level, but alas, I don't yet. Look for the School II coming soon! &&&&&&&&&&& HIGH SCORES &&&&&&&&&&& High Scores are now being accepted. Send them to OrangeStar@aol.com. Please, no cheats, because impossible scores WILL NOT be accepted. Kid Mode DOES count as a cheat. If I screwed anything up on this, please tell me. ^^The Hangar, Meacham Field, TX^^ 1.

Sephy Kid Rune Glifberg 220,944 ??Weird Stuff?? @On Skatestreet, the stairs near the HP have a ledge on the side close to the HP, but it's invisible. Quite odd... @On Skatestreet, you can get stuck in a never ending grind on the left side of the Wave Wall. (Submitted by Sephy Kid) @On School II, when you take the ramp to the roof where the secret tape is, you can get stuck in mid-air, and all your points will add up for a HUGE combo. (Submitted by firstname.lastname@example.org) !!!Challenges!!! SO, you've beaten the game. 100% with everyone. Well, the true THPS fan is just itchin for more. That's who this section is for. Good luck on these. If you've got some you think are tough (but do-able) send em to OrangeStar@aol.com. They're rated in amount of times you'll toss the Game Boy across the room trying to get them. (Actually, it's a fancy way of saying 1 through 10. But shhh, I won't tell if you don't.) 1. Easy, but at the same time, very difficult. Let's start off this section by opening the first challenge of getting all the line gaps. That's easy, you say? Nah, I mean REALLY get them, i.e. no Perfect Balance. Difficulty-<6/10> Beantown Line-<10/10> 2. I have a crazy idea, let's get all three Hangtime gaps! Uh... I mean in one combo. Not as easy anymore, is it? Difficulty-<6/10> 3. Oh, come on, you knew this was coming next. School II. All three Roll Call rails. One combo. Difficulty-<10/10>. Look at it this way, you'll get Planter to TC's line somewhere in there! 4. The level, my friends, is Marseille. The Bluetorch Pro Bowl. The challenge is to get the Marseillaise line as well as the Bonapark line in one huge 'round the level journey. Good luck. Difficulty-<9/10>. 5. Sent in by email@example.com. Try to complete all 10 hangar objectives in 2 minutes. Good luck getting that last cash, if you do it without full stats.
