All Philadelphia Gaps and Goals in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2
Here's how to get all goals, gaps, and other objectives in Philadelphia.
High Score, Pro Score, Sick Score, High Combo
To get these four park goals, you need to beat the following scores within the two minute time limit.
- High Score - 50,000
- Pro Score - 125,000
- Sick Score - 250,000
- High Combo - 40,000 (in one combo)
You need to collect the letters that make up the word "SKATE". They're scattered throughout the level. Here's where you'll find them:
- S — From the start, head to the large planter ahead of you. Follow it along and you'll see the S. Grind the edge and ollie off the planter
- K — As you come down from the S location, you'll see a blue awning ahead. Use the ramp in front of it to get up and grind the awning edge for the K
- A — The A is on a low planter next to this blue awning
- T — After the A location is a set of steps. Get up and grind the blue rail ahead. Jump off to the left for the T
- E — From the T location, get up onto the raised planter and follow it to the right. Grab the E at the end
Collect 5 Liberty Bells
There are five liberty bells in Philadelphia. Locate them all to complete this park goal.
- From the start, look to the right to see two ramps with a bell in the middle
- To the left of these two ramps is a planter. Ride over it and drop down to the right for the next bell
- From the above location, turn left to find the building with the blue awning. Use the ramp to ollie up to the next bell
- From the above location, head to the left and go up the steps. Then turn around and get on the planter. The next bell is at the end
- The final bell is over another planter to the left
Drain the Fountain
From the start, head to the right to face the two ramps opposite each other. Use the rail down the stairs to gain speed, then use the low ramp at the bottom of the steps to launch up to the balcony above. You'll see three valves in front of you — just grind one of them to drain the fountain.
Alternatively, you can head to the left from the start and find the long wire that goes over the fountain. Ride it all the way up to the roof, then drop down to get onto the balcony with the valves.
Bluntside the Awning
From the start point, behind the THPS sign you should see a blue awning. Ride over to it. Use one of the ramps to ollie up to the awning, and perform a Bluntside grind (Down, Down + Triangle) on it.
Liptrick 4 Skatepark Lips
Unlock the hidden skatepark by grinding the blue handrail onto the phone wire. You then need to perform a lip trick on the following pipes:
- Phillyside Big Bowl Lip: Perform a lip trick at the top of the large corner quarter pipe painted with the American flag
- Phillyside Mid Bowl Lip: Perform a lip trick on the curved quarter pipe next to the large corner quarter pipe
- Phillyside HP Lip: Go into the half pipe to the right of the skatepark and perform a lip trick
- Phillyside New Bowl Lip: Opposite the half pipe is a bowl with some humps nearby. Perform a lip trick in this bowl
Get the Secret Tape
From the start position, head left and find the planter that curves around to the right. At the end you should find a long wire. You need to grind this to the middle to get the secret tape.
There are four stat points in Philadelphia. Their locations depend on what style your character is. For more details, see our guide on all stat points locations.
For some of these, you need to gain access to the hidden skatepark. Here's how:
Head left of the starting position, past the building with the blue awning. You'll come across a ramp with a blue handrail. Go up the ramp and grind the blue rail — you should then continue onto a wire. Once you do, the telephone poles will fall down and smash a fence, revealing the skatepark.
- One stat point is basically dead ahead of the start position. Go forward to find it above the curved edge of the planter
- From the start position, turn to your left to find a wooden ramp with a stat point above
- In the skatepark, there's a stat point above the large quarter pipe in the corner, painted with the American flag
- In the skatepark, at the back are some humps with a quarter pipe behind them. Another stat point is hovering above the quarter pipe
- Behind the starting position, across the road is a high chainlink fence with a stat point. Wallride and wallie the fence
- There's a stat point on the long wire that goes over the fountain, same location as the secret tape
- Head behind the building with the balcony. There's a curved rail with a stat point above. Wallride up and grind the rail
- Open up the secret skatepark. Use the kicker ramp in the middle to ollie up and get a stat point
- Head to the right of the start position. Get on the big planter on the right and air off the end for a stat point
- Turn left at the start position and go past the funbox. A stat point is above a bench on the left
- In the hidden skatepark, a stat point is next to the large American flag quarter pipe
- Head down to the fountain area. To the side by the building with the blue awning is a stat point above a bollard
Vicarious Visions Logo
There's a hidden Vicarious Visions logo in each level. It looks like two letter Vs stacked on top of each other. Here's where the Vicarious Visions logo is in Philadelphia.
Go to the long wire where the secret tape is located. You need to grind it all the way up to the other end, and ollie off to the right to land on the roof. The logo is here on the right.
Unlock the skatepark area. Go there and stick to the right, going behind the right side of the half pipe. The alien plushie is in the shadows under the steps (circled above).
