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

Out of the parks I've been to, I'd say Cedar Point has the best 1-2 punch with Millennium Force and Steel Vengeance (sorry Maverick fans) followed by Kings Island with Mystic Timbers and Diamondback. Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags New England, and Kentucky Kingdom also have great 1-2 punches.

Definitely Cedar Point - Steel Vengeance and Maverick. This park wins even if one of those two didn't exist.

Skyrush & Lightning Racer (one's crazy, the other's fun -- I love 'em both)

Magnum & Millennium Force (iconic record-breakers and faces of the franchise)

Dragster & Millennium Force (my pick)

 

With all of the one-trick pony talk, Kingda Ka being a little bit bigger, downtime, and having Maverick/Steel Vengeance there, I feel like the most exhilarating ride in the park has become a little bit underrated. Dragster is it still the only coaster that makes me say "gulp," and then I giggle like an RCT peep at the exit and run right back in line.

The Voyage (6) + Thunderbird (22) || Holiday World (28)

Diamondback (10) + The Beast (19) || Kings Island (29)

Storm Chaser and Lightning Run are both epic coasters. They totally lived up to the hype and are one of the best one two punches in the US if you're looking for extreme airtime coasters.

Some honorable mentions that didn't quite make the cut: Taron/Black Mamba, Alpengesit/Apollo's Chariot, Outlaw Run/Wildfire, IRat/Superman, Flying Dino/Hollywood Dream

 

Some unridden combo's to look out for that could rank: Goliath/RMC Robin Hood, SD2000/RMC White Cyclone, IRat/Wonder Woman, iSpeed/Katun, Fury 325/Copperhead Strike, Twisted Cyclone/Goliath

 

I want to make a ranking like this for top 3 or even top 4 coaster collections!

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

Cedar Point: Steel Vengeance + Maverick. New best One-Two punch.
