Now that Six Flags Over Georgia has Twisted Cyclone I’m not sure what their one two punch would be but they have quite the trifecta now with...

Goliath
Mind Bender
Twisted Cyclone

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

I guess per the TPR Coaster poll the second best 2 coaster combo behind Cedar Point is Lisberg with Helix at 12 and Balder at 15.

Lightning Run Storm Chaser
After Burn Fury
Mako Manta
Maverick Steel Ven (sadly I have not rode Steel Ven yet)
