    A. Introduction
    This is my first FAQ ever.  So bear with me.  THPS3 is the highly
    anticipated sequel to THPS2, it as far as Iím concerned, it lives up to the
    hype and surpasses it.  Well Iíll move on with the FAQ so enjoy!  (Note: I
    am not going to explain the goals that have to do with getting a sick score
    since they are self-explanatory.  And I will not explain where the letters
    for s-k-a-t-e are since they are different for each charecter)
    B. Goal Guide
    1. Foundry
    "Cannonball over the pipe" - Just get a lot of speed, bust a no comply,  and
    do the cannon ball move over the pipe in the beginning of the level.
    "Soak the foreman" - The foreman is the guy that is right in front of the
    water tank (kina looks like a whirlpool).  Just grind the rail behind him
    and a hook will knock him into the water.
    "Grind the molten bucket" - You have to grind the bucket that is pouring the
    molten metal, not the bucket that is receiving it.  To Start out, go to
    where the control room for the bucket is (it has glass windows and there is
    a man inside and there is two lights that light up depending on where the
    bucket is)  Then you should see the bucket move over top the place where it
    dumps.  Just as it starts to dump, start to move forward to it, then use a
    no comply to pop yourself up high and grind one of the rails on either side
    of the bucket
    "50-50 TCís Rail" - TCís rail is the left rail of the walking platform on
    the ground that is in between the molten metal press and  the tanks.  Just
    hit the grind button while parallel to the rail to grind it across.
    "Get the secret tape" - The secret tape is in the air on a beam going
    through the middle of the level.  The easiest  way to get there is to stay
    on the level you start the stage on and look to your right, you should see
    the edge with a little ramp on the end with the elevated walkways  in front
    of it.  Just hit the ramp with a little bit of speed and get onto the
    elevated walkways and then make your way towards the room with glass on each
    side of it.  When you get there you should see the tape.  Just get some
    speed, hit the mini kicker ramp, and shoot yourself onto the beam with the
    "Turn off 5 valves" - The valves are the very small rails with a red light
    blinking behind it.  There are 3 on the right side of the level and 2 on the
    left.  Just grind them and they will turn blue, meaning you shut them off.
    2. Canada
    "Impress the skaters" - In this goal you have to impress the skaters by
    doing a move worth at least 2,500 in front of them.  You can distinguish
    them between the normal people because they are standing on top of quarter
    pipes and they have skateboards in their hands.  They are all in the area
    with the multiple bowels.   There is 1 on the top right hand corner of the
    bowel filled part of the level, 2 in the center, 1 in the bottom right hand
    corner, and one in the bottom left hand corner.
    "Bury the bully" - This is an easy one.  Just go down from where you start
    out, do a 180, then come back up the quarter pipe and hit the snow covered
    "Nosegrind around the horn" -  Go down from where you start out, do a 180,
    then come back and hit the ramp and land on the elevated walkway ahead of
    it, then continue and go over the next ramp and you should be at a tree with
    the walkway going through it.  Then turn around and follow the walkway (it
    should have a rope on the outer edge) hold the "up" button and hit the grind
    button and you will do a nosegrind...keep on doing this till you go all the
    way around, then jump off.
    "Do a melon over the blade" - Another easy one, just go down from where you
    start out, do a 180 and do a melon over the middle part of the quarter pipe
    and land in the other section of quarter pipe.
    "Get the secret tape" - First go to the spot with the tree with a walkway
    going through it (stated in the nosegrind around the horn goal earlier) then
    instead of turning around, keep going straight and go over the ramp, you
    should see a quarter pipe ahead of you with a half pipe beside it.  Grind
    the rail to the right of you and you will hit a switch that will raise the
    half pipe.  Go from the quarter pipe to the half pipe.   Then go from the
    half pipe to another half pipe ahead of it.  Then from that half pipe go
    onto the platform ahead.   Then when you get to the edge of the platform hit
    the grind button and you will start to grind on a railroad track with the
    tape at the end.
    "Get chuck unstuck" - Another easy one, Ollie over the fence to the left of
    you and hit the boy in blue with his tongue against the pole.
    3. Suburbia
    "Help the thin man" -  First off, go to the house that is still under
    construction and grind the pieces of wood that are on the ground, you will
    get an axe, that is the key.  Then go to the big "haunted" mansion that is
    to the left of where you start and go up to the thin man.
    "Clear the power lines" -  The easiest way I can think of doing this is to
    go to the house directly behind the fence that you can get to by just going
    straight from where you start out.  Go up the ramp leading to the roof of
    the house nearest the fence then you will see two lines with tree branches
    on them, just grind the top one first, then when you get to the roof of the
    other house turn around and grind the other wire back, completing the goal.
    "Get the secret tape" - First you must help the thin man.  Then go into his
    house and clear the gap from one quarter pipe to the next.  Then you will be
    in a room with a high rollin wood on it.  Hit it then go in the opposite
    direction and it the quarter pipe with the ramp on top of it and you will go
    through the window and bats will fly out.  Then just center yourself  in the
    hallway, and when you break through the other window, hit the grind button
    and you will grind onto the tape.
    "Heelflip the trailer gap"  - The trailer you have to heel flip over is in
    the extreme upper right hand corner of the level (it has a silver quarter
    pipe behind it).  Hit the silver quarter pipe, then hit the ramp on the
    trailer, bust a no comply, then do a heelflip while in midair.
    "Smash 5 pumpkins"  -  To smash the pumpkins you have to just simply run
    into them or you can do a move on them if you want.  There is one on the
    front porch of the grey building with a jeep in the driveway.   One on the
    half pipe on the right side of the haunted house.  One on the quarter pipe
    on the left side of the haunted house.  One on the wood fence/quarter pipe
    beside the manís house that you helped clear the wires of the debris.  And
    the last one is in that same mans garage, on the brick fence.
    "Nosegrab over the pipe" - Simply nosegrab over the two mini quarter pipes
    on the right of the quarter pipe that is beside the haunted house.
    4. Airport
    "Stop the pickpockets"  - The pickpockets are the guys in black.  Just run
    into them to stop them.  There are two on either side of the conveyor belt
    on the very beginning of the level (top floor)  there are two in the locker
    room on the second floor.  And there is one on the 3rd floor near the
    "Get the tickets to your skate buddy" - To start out, grind the counter with
    the lady behind it in the beginning of the level to get the tickets.  Then
    you must make it all the way down two sets of escalators without bailing,
    while at the same time ramping over the metal detectors because they will
    void the tickets.  If you bail or if the tickets are voided, you have to
    start over.  After you make it all the way down to the 2nd escalator, take a
    left and you will see your skate buddy with his chick (or mom, I don't know
    :) ) just skate up to him and the goal is complete
    "Crooked grind the baggage return machine" - To start out, hop over the
    counter to the right of where you start out, then hop onto the conveyor belt
    and skate into the baggage intake thing.  You will see some flashes and then
    you will see a helicopter.  Just keep going straight and you will see
    escalators going underground, follow one  of them.  Then you will see the
    baggage return machine.  Just press the "up" and "right" buttons
    simultaneously and hold them, then get up to the baggage return machine and
    Ollie and press the grind button, you should be crooked grinding it, just
    grind a complete circle and jump off.
    "Airwalk over an escalator" - Go to the same spot as the goal above.  Then
    simply get some speed, hit one of the quarter pipes, then airwalk over one
    of the escalators and land on the other side on the other quarter pipe.
    "Find the secret tape" - Go to the floor in which you help your skate buddy.
      Then go to the opposite end of that floor and you will see the tape up in
    the air against the curved glass.  To get there hit the quarter pipe on the
    side, up against the wall, and then grind the rail closest to the ceiling.
    Keep your balance and you  will make it to the tape.
    "Visit 10 countries" - Go to the same floor as you found the secret tape.
    You will notice 5 flags on each side of that floor with a rail going
    underneath them all.  Just hit the rail beside the quarter pipe to the
    right, (stated on the goal above) and you will grind all the way around,
    hitting 10 flags.  Then go to the opposite side of the airport and do the
    same thing.
    5. Los Angeles
    "Start the earthquake" - You have to grind 4 rails in the area immediately
    ahead of you.  There are 2 rails on either side of the block, one going down
    the middle (it is the straight one going though the building), and one going
    horizontally, with the road, on the bottom of the block (it's in between the
    newspaper dispensers and the grass).
    "Free ball it" - Take off your boxers. j/k.  There are two big orange balls
    in the center of the level (between the purple building and the yellow
    building) just Ollie into them to knock them free.
    "Stop the car chase" - First you must start the earthquake (see above). Then
    go to the part of LA where the fire truck is.  Hit the quarter pipe nearest
    the fire truck, opposite of the car wash.  Then hold the up button and Ollie
    as you come up the other quarter pipe so you land on top of the car wash.
    Hop onto the part of broken highway going into LA, then head up it and Ollie
    onto the next section, you will see a turquoise car teetering on the side of
    the highway.  Simply grind the section of highway he's teetering on and he
    will fall, stopping the van, and a shootout will start.
    "Vertical Kickflip the Gap" - The gap they are talking about is the one
    between the rails behind the building with the glass you can skate through.
    Just gain speed, hit one of the rails, grind up, Ollie, do a vertical
    kickflip, then land and grind on the opposite rail.
    "Find the secret tape" - Go back onto the broken highway, then keep on
    hopping from section to section until you get to the section that has
    plywood up against the edge, forming a ramp.  Get some speed, then hit the
    ramp with a no comply and you should be launched to the awning of the
    building that was in front of you.  Then get a skating start, and grind the
    awning you are on, then Ollie and grind the curved awning in front of you,
    then Ollie once more and you will grind the rail with the secret tape on it.
    "One foot Japan the tower popping gap" - This is the gap on top of the
    building with the breakable glass.  Hit one of the quarter pipes on either
    side of the building,  Bust a one-footed Japan, then land in the mini half
    pipe on top of the building.
    6. Cruise Ship
    "Impress the Neversoft girls" - This can be a tough one if you aren't
    careful.  You must do a trick in front of them (they have a tank top on with
    Neversoft across it), worth at least 4000 points to impress them.  There are
    7 girls you must impress.  To start out, drop down on the quarter pipe from
    which you start on, do a 180, go in-between the two quarter pipes, drop down
    to the second deck (there is a single wire with flags on it going down) then
    do a trick to impress her.  Then drop down one more deck and do the same
    thing,  then head on either side of the ship and impress the girls there.
    Then there are 3 more left and they are on the middle to the back of the
    ship.  One being in the very back, and one is by the pool with a blue
    waterslide and one is beside the pool with a cake beside it.
    "Raise the ferry" - This is an easy one.  Go onto the bottom deck.  Then go
    onto the side of the ship where there are multiple rescue boats lined up.
    There will be a man checking out a blue box.  Just wall ride the blue box
    and the ferry will raise.
    "Find the secret tape" - Go down from where you start, do a 180, then come
    back up the pipe, being sure to get enough speed to make it to the top wire.
    then grind.  You should grind the flagged wires all the way to the "tail" of
    the ship.  Then jump off, get some speed, center yourself on the tail, and
    use the mini half pipe to get the secret tape.
    "Invert the high wires" - First you must drain the pool by grinding the
    silver pipe beside the "tail" of the ship (itís the big red and white metal
    thing coming out of the ship with the secret tape on it).  Then go into the
    pool, get some speed, then bust an invert on either of the wires with flags
    on them.
    "Wreck the museum" - The museum is located behind the pool area, or under
    the spot you start out on.  Once you get there, grind the outside edge of
    the museum, where there are 2 ropes holding up a huge propeller.
    "Noseblunt slide an awning" - Go to the bottom floor of the ship, then go to
    the spot where the lifeboats are lined up.  Hit one of the low rails, then
    jump up and press Up Up and the grind button to Noseblunt slide one of the
    brown awnings coming out of the side of the ship.
