You don't have to apologize to me for picking an inferior coaster to SV. That is on you. ;)

:nina: :lol:

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.

Cedar Point: Maverick (1) + Steel Vengeance (2) = 3
SFMM: Twisted Colossus (4) + X2 (6) = 10
Knott's Berry Farm: Xcelerator (8) + Ghostrider (10) = 18
Kings Island: Diamondback (9) + Mystic Timbers (11) = 20
