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.


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.


We just have different opinions of the word "excellent", you make it more of an exclusive term than me but I think we're sort of on the same page. Aside from Skyrush and Storm Runner everything you just named is an elite coaster in my opinion. I think that if a park has one of the greatest coasters ever built in I305 and surrounds it with coasters that are a slight step down but still amazing like the best floorless coaster in America, a super unique and awesome double launching Intamin invert that launches out of a damn volcano and (at least in my opinion with apologies to Mummy) the best indoor coaster in America that's pretty sick. Especially when right below that they have another tier of super fun coasters like Backlot, Avalanche and Grizzly.

So in regards to this thread you could argue that they don't have a great 1-2 punch (though if you think Dominator, Volcano or Flight of Fear qualify then I won't argue with you because everyone has different tastes and they're all amazing), but regarding their coaster lineup I think it's awesome. I don't feel like they really "need" anything.

PS: I f**king love Backlot Stunt Coaster.

I am annoying as f**k!!!

I think Alton Towers delivers with Nemesis and Oblivion. Although technically they are at the same park, it takes half an hour to reach the other! Worth it though.
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

MUST BUY RMC MERCHANDISE!!!!

Ok, cool! I mean there's a definite sense of subjectivity when deciding "best" of anything, but my only point was that I don't think KD can qualify for this thread with the current selection of coasters. I think Dominator is the 5th best floorless in the US (where's the zero-g?), far below Kraken ;) . I also think Volcano is great, but for exactly 16 seconds - The rest is pretty dull. Regarding FoF - my height makes it hard for me to fully enjoy Premier trains and the MCBR kills all pacing from that point onward.

Best overall : Hansa Park --> Karnän + Fluch Von Novgorod. Both rides really pack a punch !!!
Second deserved place : Mirabilandia --> Katun + iSpeed
Coaster Counter : 168

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

Kumba and Montu. They're very close to each other, and I've never seen the wait time for both exceed half an hour. ;)

SkyRush and Storm Runner by a decent amount for me. Honorable mention to Phoenix/Twister and El Toro/Kingda Ka.

King's Island, Banshee + Beast. Could even remove either of those, replace it with Firehawk, and still have my top 1-2.

Why do I still have a donkey title???
