First unlock the Pro Skater level by completing story mode. Then go to free skate. Play around in the level until you get into the large bowl-like area where the aliens are meditating. On one of the walkways in that area, there is an alien that will tell you to activate the red walls on either side of the walkway. They are slightly below eye level. Sticker plant them to activate them. Once both are activated, an intermission sequence showing a gateway opening to the Aztec Temple will appear. Enter the portal and talk to some of the Aztecs. One will tell you not to grind the ropes holding up the giant monkey statue. Grind the ropes, and a secret area in the temple will be unlocked. Another Aztec will tell you that if you paint the five monkey statues, the gods will become angry and you will be sentenced to burn in Hell. Paint the statues and enter the portal that appears. In the back of Hell towards the giant demon face, there is a demon midget. He will tell you to liptrick on the broken ribs on the side of the walkway. The ribs will fall to make two new ramps. Use the ramps and the rail attached to them to sticker plant the Satanic Pentagram symbols. In each of the three areas, there is a portal to both of the other areas -- you just have to find them. Note: Once you quit the level, the open areas will close again. Also, when you reach the hell secret area, jump down the hole in front of you. Get off your board, then walk up to a corner on a ramp. You should be pushed toward the lava and walk on it. You will not be killed. You can look at the monster or walk down the hall with the hands toward a fire wall.
- Beaver Blast: Press Left, Right, B.
- Entertainer Manual: Press Up, Down, Y.
- Frakiln Grind: Press Down, Up, Y.
- One Wheel Manual: Press Down, Up, Y.
- Shark: Press Up, Down, Y.

To do the Natas Spin, approach an object, such as a trash can, statue, or a pole, while standing on the board. Jump at it and press Y while holding R.
Enable the "Infinite rail balance" code. Play in any mode, then pause the game and go to the options. Go to cheat options and turn on "Perfect Rail". This will let you grind perfectly without falling. It will also let you lip and Natas Spin perfectly. Preform a lip trick and begin changing your position (tap B, X, or Y twice) in the middle of your lip trick. When doing this, it will only take two or three to get your special bar up.
When you need a lot of points, find a trash can or another object and do a Natas Spin on it.
You must do certain things to get your stats up. For the spin, do spine transfers until you get to one quarterpipe, then go up it; your air time will be high. You can then do 1080 spins. Another way is to enable the "Infinite rail balance" cheat, then find a fountain that is circular (for example, in Berlin). Keep going around, adding tricks. You will get numerous stat points by doing this, including grind for 10 sec., etc. Infinite rail balance is also infinite lip balance, so you can get the lip for 3, 5, etc. sec. stat points as well. If there is something difficult, do twenty grabs in one combo (Story Mode on Sick, and for Air Stat), try to get the other things first, then do it. Look at your stats, and see what is easy and what is not.
To cause a train wreck in Berlin, skate over to the bar area. Climb up the large brown building to the third and top ledge. If you follow that ledge over towards the train tracks, there should be a black and yellow bar. Grind it to cause the train wreck. There is also a massive point bonus for this stunt.
Go to the statehouse (the building with the two statues). Go on the right side, where there is a ramp on the building. Go up the ramp and break the glass. You will now be inside the building. Ben Franklin will be in there. Follow him and you will complete the goal, as well as unlock him in any mode.
From the starting point, turn right and go to the apartments just before the construction site. Using the quarter pipe on the right side, jump through the window into the room above. You will see the Star Wars Kid and can have him show you his moves.
Go to where the Star Wars Kid is found, but on the other side. When you enter the area the Star Wars Kid should be on your left. A person on the right will be trying to levitate a goat.
Light your board on firem then grind on both cannons. An intermission sequence showing the building being destroyed will begin.
Grind all the earthquake rails to start an earthquake that makes the highway fall.
In order to have the dead walk among you in New Orleans, you must first enter the cemetery and knock all the skulls off the five crypts. Once this is accomplished the game will start an intermission sequence which features a voodoo guy on a tricycle shooting out of the river behind the cemetery and casting a spell that turns the civilians in New Orleans into the living dead. Also, a hole that leads to the underworld is opened up in the center of New Orleans. In order to reverse the spell, do a Spine Transfer into the hole and grind the circle in the underworld. Keep grinding on it until the game instructs you to jump off. At this point, you will be shot out of the hole. Then, a timer will begin. You must do a grab trick over the statue in the church courtyard. The grab trick you must do is hold Down/Left and press X. If this is accomplished, the spell is reversed and everything returns to normal. Note: The dead will not try to hurt you. They just walk and stand around. Once the spell has been activated, you can play as the voodoo guy on the tricycle. He is located in the back of the cemetery.
Run through the dumpsters to knock liquor bottles out onto the street. Run over the bottle on the street (by walking) about ten times in a row. By then, the bottle will stay where you ran it to, but will continue spinning.
When the cat gets on your head, if you skate fast enough away, it will be on your skater's head until you go back to the spot where it gets on your head. This also works even when you change skaters.
The easiest way to complete the Bomb Box mission in Skatopia is to Flip Trick onto one of the lower boxes and Caveman the rest in that row. Just jump from box to box after getting off your board, but make sure to do one row at a time.
First, unlock Bigfoot. Do this by giving Jesse James the chainsaw and find Bigfoot in the cliffs near the billboard that you tag. Switch to Bigfoot and start at the top of the mountain where the old bus is located. Then, start the manual. Because the board is gas powered, you will go zooming down the mountain and will not have to balance for too long. Then, just go out the entrance while manualing and the goal is done.
Grab on to what looks like a jet pack and it will take you on a very fast rope ride.
Do the "Free The Bull Fighter" goal first. Remember to let the bull lose by throwing tomatoes at it. Next, go to the bridge and jump over the burning car to catch your board on fire and use the catapults to hoist yourself up into the air. Note: The catapult part may require a few attempts.
When you start, go to the area were all the helicopters are located. One of the helicopters will have missiles on its side. Grind the missiles to blow up two doors on the side of the mountain.
Jump on the house near the elephant then hop on the elephant's back. He will get mad and crush the aquarium door.
To unlock the R/V halfpipe and that mission for your character, play as Jesse James and jump over three cars.
When customizing your board, go to the "Griptape" section. Scroll through the list, clicking on every single griptape until you reach one with a bat on it. This was the griptape that the demon girl from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 had on her board.
When you reach the Australia level, go to the fountain. You will find a headless statue near a crane carrying a koala head. This is Kenny the Koala, who was the mascot for the zoo level in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4.
