Sky Lines is a level in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2X, located in Detroit, Michigan, on a rainy night. This level represents the roofs of 3 skyscrapers.

TriviaEdit

  • This level is often called Rooftops, which is also how the Paris level was nicknamed in game files of THPS3.
  • This levels design was inspired by "Spider-Man". He was the main unlockable character in THPS2 as "Neversoft" were also developing a "Spider-Man" game at the same time. You will find various references to "Spider-Man" strewn throughout the level from "Graffiti" to "Gaps".\
  • Particle effects that represent rain appear in the level.
  • In the level preview, there's a billboard that advertises Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer, which was released around the same time as Pro Skater 3.
  • During some grinds around the edges of the level, the camera will pan down to the out-of-bounds street area. It is unknown if this is a common occurance or a glitch.
  • Somewhere in the level, there is a gap named "Bournouli Principle". Though misspelled in-game, this is a reference to Bernoulli's Principle, which states that "an increase in the speed of a fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy". How this principle applies to the level is unclear.
  • Two more gaps in the level, "Float Like A Butterfly", and "Leap Tall Buildings in a Single Bound", also contain references. The former is a reference to the quote "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee", attributed to late boxing champion Muhammed Ali. The latter is a reference to a common description of one of the powers of DC superhero, Superman.
  • Yet another gap, "Singin in Da Rain" is a slight spelling variation of the musical comedy "Singin' in the Rain".
  • This level was partially recycled into the Rooftops level of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, along with THPS2's GBA only level Rooftops, and Construction Site.
