Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

See Car Models From THUG

Go to the Los Angeles level and get onto the highway WITHOUT setting off the earthquake first. Once there you can see some car models from the original THUG, such as that green car you drove in New Jersey and the limo you drove in another level.

Ben Franklin In Boston

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.

The Star Wars Kid In Boston

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.

Man Trying To Levitate A Goat In Boston

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.

Destroy The Construction Building In Boston

Hidden Areas In Pro Skater

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.
