Even if the ranking isn't that high, Volcano is a fitting follow-up to I305, so considering actually riding both coasters in a series, it's a great "One-Two Punch" indeed. If I was going totally by rankings (if I had any), Dominator would appear instead of Volcano, but I almost never actually ride them in series, in either order.

The other combos in my much more limited experience:
Hershey (pre-Skyrush): Lightning Run, Storm Runner
BGW: any 2 of Griffon, Alps and Apollo
SFA: although I love Roar and even Mind Eraser, the park has Helix Twins in Superman and Wild One.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

SeaWorld Orlando: Manta + Mako. . . . blew me away.

I only rank the top ten; I don't really care to decide which is the 46th and 47th, as they're about equal and I'd probably be riding something else.

Three parks have 2 rides in my top ten:

Cedar Point - Millennium Force, Magnum XL-200, and Maverick
Kings Island - Beast and Diamondback
Silver Dollar City - Outlaw Run and Wildfire

I disagree, I think Volcano is kinda fun in the front, but only for the first 7 seconds of the ride. Once you exit the volcano, the ride is pretty lame... Not a huge fan of Dominator either. These coasters aren't bad - They're far from great and do not even come close to being comparable to I305, IMO.

Kolmarden: Wildfire and Delfinexpressen


But really,

Kentucky Kingdom
SFNE
Liseberg

Are the first 3 parks that come to mind for their fantastic duos. And Liseberg is the only one where one is wood and one is steel.
