After riding Twisted Timbers for the first time last weekend, I can confirm that Kings Dominion BY FAR has the best one-two punch of any park I have visited. Intimidator 305 is still my favorite coaster in the park (and favorite coaster of all time), but Timbers is also an excellent ride and a top-tier RMC in my opinion.
Steel: 176 / Wood: 32 / Total: 208
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

Actually I have to double post this. Because there's honestly,
a great one-two punch for kids at Playland(PNE), too!

Playland(PNE): Kettle Creek Mine & Bug Whirled. :smile:

A great family coaster for kids and their parents! Bit of airtime in it, too.

This is a hard one:

1. Walibi World - Untamed (1) + Goliath (6) = 7
2. Liseberg - Helix (3) + Lisebergbanan (15) = 18
3. Europa Park - Silver Star (10) + Blue Fire (11) = 21
4. Alton Towers - Nemesis (8) + Galactica (15) = 23

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

I'm going to say Holiday World with Wildebeest and Mammoth - two great water coasters that are placed side by side. I will also credit Hersheypark with having Breakers Water Coaster and Whitecap Racers side by side.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Mystic Timbers and KI's Giga I think will make for a pretty great one-two punch, once next year comes...

EDIT: And also, Skyrush and Candymonium as well...

I'm surprised I haven't seen more love for Maverick and Steel Vengeance. Maybe a bunch of the posters here are Europe oriented and can't get out there?

Not only are they in the same park, but they're right next to each other as well. Just a match made in heaven.

^ Steel Vengeance is still pretty new. Except for those of us who live in the Midwest, even a lot of Americans won't have had a chance just yet. But I agree with you, those two next to each other makes that frontier area even better than it already was. Just needs a log flume, and it'd be perfect.

2019 update:

1. Cedar Point: Steel Vengeance(1) + Maverick(5) = 6
2. Kings Dominion: Intimidator 305(4) + Twisted Timbers(9) = 13
3. Six Flags Fiesta Texas: Wonder Woman(17) + Iron Rattler(19) = 36
3. Liseberg: Helix(20) + Balder(32) = 52
5. Hersheypark: Skyrush(8) + Storm Runner(51) = 59

Some other combos I haven't ridden that I think are/will be worthy of mention:
Jersey Devil + El Toro
Zadra + Hyperion

I'm also interested in what additional parks could be considered in the best "One-Two-Three Punch" - BGW? Kings Island?
