THPS - Philadelphia Secret Tape

Finding Secret Tapes in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 seems to be my specialty these days. Well, the secret is actually that I played these games like wild back in the early 2000s, and every time I fire up a new stage, the memories come flooding back.

Anyway, the Secret Tape in Philadelphia really isn’t that hard to get; it just requires a pretty long grind. It’s definitely easier if you improve your Rail Balance stat before you attempt this one.

There’s a wire over the fountain, and you really just need to grind that as far as you can until you reach the tape. The approach is maybe a little tricky, but it does help if you ollie up onto the nearby ledge and ride the dirt toward the liberty bell so that you’re lined up with the wire.

If none of that makes sense, just check out the video below. Oh, and don’t laugh but I biff it at the end.
