I've never been, but I think Kentucky Kingdom has one of the best one-two punches out there with Lightning Run and Storm Chaser. It really doesn't get much better than that.


As for parks I've visited, Six Flags New England (Wicked Cyclone and Superman) is the best one that comes to mind. And like others have said, especially with Steel Vengeance, Cedar Point will have a one-two-three-four-five punch!

Outlaw Run + literally every other adult coaster in the park, pick any of them. Seriously the only park where the entire lineup is the one-two-three-four-five punch, and I haven't even started on the non coaster things

CP - Steel Vengeance + Maverick (not to mention MF) = /discussion


On the subject of parks where basically their entire coaster lineup is a 1-2-3 punch, I came away from Sea World Orlando with that feeling after this year's visit. Mako, Manta, and Kraken are at or near the top of all their respective categories, and are a killer trifecta for a park! Everything else that's awesome about SWO is just gravy!

Great topic.

Obvious answer is CP but that seems unfair there's so much. It's like a 1-2-3 (now 4) punch flurry.


So I'll go with

Kentucky Kingdom:

Storm Chaser and Lightning Run is a superb 1-2. Top 15 coasters, and LR prob will make my top 10 with some time now to think about it.


Honorable mention to Hersheypark

Here are some of our favorites:


Millennium Force - Maverick (sorry SV fanboys)


You don't have to apologize to me for picking an inferior coaster to SV. That is on you.



Besides, SV can't have fanboys... It only has real human beings with normal feelings who rank it #1, and synthetic androids, apparently...


And yes, that was a joke, in case it wasn't readily apparent... lol
