I have to say with the lack of theming in recent years from Six Flags I really enjoyed all of the nice touches that went into Tony Hawk's Big Spin including the wheels and skateboard deck on the cars.

On ride photos that you can purchase afterwards as a memento of your ride has been a big thing for a while but on Tony Hawk's Big Spin they take it to the next level.  Instead of on ride photos you can now purchase on ride videos.  It's kind of a cool system but I'm not sure how many people are going to pay $19.99 for a DVD of just one ride.

Tony Hawk's Big Spin loads and dispatches two cars at once.  While the first progresses straight to the lift the second stops on a block brake at the base of it before proceeding.  Just a little side note if you happen to be on the second car brace yourself before you hit the brake because the brake is quite sudden and can feel like a gut punch depending on which seat you're in.

Tony Hawk's Big Spin doesn't tower over Six Flags St' Louis' other coasters or can even be seen from outside of the park but at fifty-four feet tall it makes up for it's diminutive size with plenty of fun.
