I don't really have number rankings assigned to coasters I've ridden. Here are some that immediately stand out to me using the eyeball test... Kumba/Montu - Busch Tampa Skyrush/Storm Runner - Hersheypark Voyage/Pick one of the other two - Holiday World Outlaw Run/Powder Keg - Silver Dollar City ...and of course, Goliath/Flashback @ SFNE.
From the top of my head, in no particular order as I don't do rankings. Some parks I haven't visited in a long time so I list them on how I felt at the time of the visit:
Liseberg - Helix/Balder SFGADV - El Toro/Nitro (2008 visit) BGT - Kumba/Montu IoA - Hulk / Dragons Parque Warner - Batman la Fuga / Superman la Atracción de Acero (2003 visit)*
*To be honest I'm not sure how I would rank the latter now. But when I rode it back in 2003 I had only been on a handful non-kiddie coasters and it absolutely blew my mind back then, so I figured it was worth mentioning.
This is fun! My list may be innaccurate because I separate wood and steel rankings... A #25 wood isn't quite the same level as a #25 steel.
Cedar Point - Maverick(2) + Millennium Force(14) = 16 Holiday World - Voyage(4) + Legend(12) = 16 Six Flags New England - Superman the Ride(8) + Wicked Cyclone(12) = 20 SFGAdv - El Toro(2) + Nitro(18) = 20 Hersheypark - Skyrush(3) + Storm Runner(20) = 23 Knoebel's - Pheonix(3) + Twister(20) = 23 Canada's Wonderland - Leviathan(13) + Behemoth(10) = 23 King's Island - Beast(9) + Diamondback(16) = 25 Carowinds - Fury 325(5) + Intimidator(24) = 29 Six Flags Mexico - Medusa Steel Coaster(4) + Superman el Ultimo Escape(26) = 30 Kentucky Kingdom - Storm Chaser(15) + Lightning Run(17) = 32 SFGAm - Goliath(6) + Raging Bull(27) = 33 SFFT - Iron Rattler(6) + Superman Krypton Coaster(33) = 39 Silver Dollar City - Outlaw Run(1) + Wildfire(38) = 39
King's Dominion desperately needs another rank-able coaster... They have I305 and a nothing else that's truly "great" Also, if Lightning Rod was open when I visited last month, Dollywood would SURELY win for me.
And as far as non-visited parks go... Helix/Balder, iSpeed/Katun, Flying Aces/Formula Rossa, Taron/Black Mamba, Goliath/Lost Gravity, Blue Fire/Silver Star or Wodan, Shambhala/Dragon Khan, Viper/Havoc in Heaven Palace, T Express/Herky & Timmy's Racing Coaster all look like excellent combos!

I'm just going to wing this from what my rankings are in my head, maybe I'll do an "official" one later...
Cedar Point: Maverick + Millennium Hershey: Skyrush + Storm Runner/Fahrenheit (Both are close and switch often for me) SFGADV: El Toro + Nitro Darien Lake: Ride of Steel + Predator BGT: Kumba + Montu BGW: Apollo + Alpengeist CW: Behemoth + Leviathan
Once I get back to SFNE, Superman and Wicked Cyclone should be high.
I'm actually not a kid; it's my nickname. I'm the youngest guy at my job. Only until after I created my account did I realize it made my sound like I'm 12. "Giddy up"- Cosmo KramerFinally got an avatar! Darien Lake coaster drought: 16 years and counting.....
I haven't been there but Kentucky Kingdom seems to be one of the best candidates for this.
For where I have been, here are the parks that are under 20.
Cedar Point (5): Millennium Force (1) and Maverick (4) Six Flags Over Texas (10): New Texas Giant (2) and ShockWave (8) Silver Dollar City (16): Outlaw Run (3) and Powder Keg (13) Kings Island (18): Diamondback (7) and The Beast (11)
1. Fury 325 | 2. Millennium Force | 3. New Texas Giant | 4. Outlaw Run | 5. Maverick | 6. Twisted Cyclone | 7. Iron Rattler | 8. The Voyage | 9. Goliath (SFGAm) | 10. Time Traveler
