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.
Been you to have any spike, man?

I am annoying as f**k!!!

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.

I Love Donkeys!

Milennium Force and Maverick: 5

Kumba and Montu: 12

Fury325 and Afterburn: 21

Phoenix and Twister: 23

Come on man, get it together! With all the Knoebel's advocacy we see from you, I'm shocked that your rating isn't:

"Phoenix and Twister: 2"

Or are you fighting with them right now because your pierogis weren't buttery enough the last time you visited?

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.

From the parks I have done I think about the next parks

Phantasialand (Taron 1 + Black Mamba 5) = 6

Europapark (Silver Star 4 + Blue Fire 8) = 12

Heide Park (Flug der Dämonen 7 + Colossos 11) = 18

Hansa Park (Schwur des Kärnan 3 + Fluch von Novgorod 17) = 20

Parc Asterix (Goudurix 10 + OZiris 20) = 30 (yes people will disagree with this one)

Djurs Sommerland (Juvelen 14 + Piraten 26) = 40

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Random order:
Kings Dominion- Intimidator + Volcano
SFGA- El Toro + Kingda Ka
Hershey- Skyrush + Storm Runner
CP- Maverick + Millenium Force
Magic Kingdom- Space Mountain + Big Thunder Mountain (classics)

I would say SFNE with Wicked Cyclone and Bizzaro (when I rode it), but Bizzaro was such a let down. Perhaps it was just having a bad day? :?r
Top 5: 1.Steel Vengeance 2.Twisted Timbers 3.El Toro 4.Wicked Cyclone 5.Intimidator 305

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
