Ok, getting back to the numbering system introduced in the first post, here are my Top 5 One-Two Punch Coasters!

 

1. Cedar Point (5) - Millennium Force and Maverick, Maverick and Millennium Force. Either way you slice it, no park comes close, in my opinion!

 

2. Holiday World (18) - The Voyage and Thunderbird

 

3. Six Flags Great Adventure (23) - El Toro and Nitro

 

4. Sea World Orlando (28) Kraken and Manta

 

5. Kings Island (32) Diamondback and Banshee

The best one-two punch(es) at any park? Six Flags New England.

 

Want to ride some great coasters? Superman and Wicked Cyclone are there for you.

 

Want to take the literal meaning and feel line you got beat up? Mind Eraser and Goliath will take care of that.

 

Either way, you can't lose!

Mirabilandia: iSpeed + Katun. You're not going to beat that. Without a doubt, the best one-two punch.

 

Some runners up.

Six Flags Magic Mountain: X2 + Twisted Colossus

Busch Gardens Tampa: Kumba + Montu

Liseberg: Balder + Helix

I'd definitely say that the top duo currently is Superman The Ride and Wicked Cyclone.

 

Katun and iSpeed, Helix and Balder, Python in Bmaboo Forest and Coaster Through the Clouds, and Skyrush and Storm Runner are also definitely up there.

 

However, I believe Movieworld Australia could end up with the best duo once the Mack hyper is finished.

If I am assuming Steel Vengeance will be my new #1 coaster (which is almost guaranteed once I ride it), then Cedar Point will have my number 1, and number 2 OVERALL. And then they have Maverick, TTD, Valravn, Raptor...this is no contest.

Okay let's try this.

 

1. Maverick (3) + Millennium Force (10) = 13

2. Maverick (3) + Raptor (14) = 17

3. Maverick (3) + Magnum XL-200 (17) = 20

4. Millennium Force (10) + Raptor (14) = 24

5. Voyage (2) + Legend (24) = 26

6. Millennium Force (10) + Magnum XL-200 (17) = 27

7. Superman The Ride (12) + Wicked Cyclone (18) = 30

8. Raptor (14) + Magnum XL-200 (17) = 31

9. Skyrush (1) + Storm Runner (31) = 32

10. El Toro (5) + Nitro (29) = 34

 

Get ready for a whole lot more italics when Steel Vengeance opens...

All major parks I've visited ranked by sum of top two rankings:

 

Carowinds: Fury 325 (2) + Afterburn (9) = 11

Six Flags Magic Mountain: Tatsu (5) + Twisted Colossus (8) = 13

Six Flags Great Adventure: El Toro (3) + Bizarro (11) = 14

Knott's Berry Farm: GhostRider (6) + Silver Bullet (13) = 19

Hersheypark: Storm Runner (7) + Fahrenheit (15) = 22

Kings Dominion: Intimidator 305 (1) + Dominator (21) = 22

Knoebels: Phoenix (4) + Flying Turns (20) = 24

Busch Gardens Williamsburg: Apollo's Chariot (10) + Alpengeist (18) = 28

Six Flags Over Georgia: Mindbender (19) + Goliath (26) = 45

Valleyfair: Renegade (14) + Wild Thing (49) = 63

Dorney Park: Hydra (31) + Talon (40) = 71

Six Flags America: Superman: Ride of Steel (43) + Roar (44) = 87

 

Of course, Carowinds drops off badly after the top two. Intimidator sits at 54, so without Fury, the park sits down there with Valleyfair.

After I went and actually ranked everything for the poll, here's a pseudoscientific way of determining which park has the best top 2 coasters (which is not at all related to which ones I think are the best parks overall):

 

1. Cedar Point: Millennium Force (1) and Magnum XL-200 (7) = 8 pts.

2. Holiday World: Voyage (6) and Thunderbird (12) = 18 pts.

3. Knoebels: Phoenix (3) and Twister (16) = 19 pts.

4. Hersheypark: Skyrush (4) and Lightning Racer (23) = 27 pts.

5. Kentucky Kingdom: Lightning Run (14) and Storm Chaser (15) = 29 pts.

6. Dollywood: Mystery Mine (10) and Wild Eagle (20) = 30 pts.

7. SF Magic Mountain: Twisted Colossus (13) and Tatsu (22) = 35 pts.

8. SF Great America: Goliath (17) and X-Flight (19) = 36 pts.

9. Kings Island: Diamondback (9) and The Beast (29) = 38 pts.

10T. Disneyland: Space Mountain (11) and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (28) = 39 pts.

10T. SF Great Adventure: El Toro (5) and Nitro (34) = 39 pts.
