Yep, that about sums up my list.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

My first pick:
Liseberg - Helix + Balder

Some other great ones:
Cedar Point - Maverick + Millennium Force
SFGAdv - El Toro + Nitro
Silver Dollar City - Outlaw Run + Powder Keg
Hersheypark - Skyrush + Storm Runner
Six Flags New England - Wicked Cyclone + Superman the Ride
Kings Dominion - Intimidator 305 + Volcano
Busch Gardens Tampa - Montu + Kumba

Dollywood, Hansa Park may make this list after my next trip. Europa and Phantasialand probably make this list after my first trip(next summer).

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.


I think Volcano, Flight of Fear and Dominator are all excellent coasters. I don't understand the people that complain about KD's lineup.

^ Preach!

I305 is mindblowing but Volcano and Dominator are totally solid, awesome rides. Dominator was the biggest surprise of my visit this weekend. That thing rips - Bizarro has finally been dethroned as my favorite floorless. I didn't get to ride Flight of Fear (stupid Haunt!) but having ridden Jokers Jinx I'm sure its totally great. Next year...

But yeah I'll add

I305 + Volcano
and
Alpengeist + Griffon (+ Apollo's Chariot)

to my list of 1-2 punches

Kumba & Sheikra (insert Montu if you please)
Maverick & Magnum (shut up, I don't need your opinion, Magnum is awesome)

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

None of those are "excellent" :lmao: and none of them deserve to be compared against combos like Storm Chaser+Lightning Run, Maverick+MForce, Superman+WC, Balder+Helix, Skyrush+Storm Runner, etc. I'm not even complaining about their coaster lineup (They have a ton of decent rides, and those three you listed are good), they just do not have a real "one-two punch" like other entries in this thread.

For me it would have to be sfga. With a combination of El Toro and kinda ka. And add nitro into the mix, and you have a good lineup.

A close second would be Cedar point and sfmm.

Millennium force and top thrill for cp, and x2 plus colossus and Goliath for sfmm.
