If I am assuming Steel Vengeance will be my new #1 coaster (which is almost guaranteed once I ride it), then Cedar Point will have my number 1, and number 2 OVERALL. And then they have Maverick, TTD, Valravn, Raptor...this is no contest.
Remember: Get out there and RIDE!

2. Maverick (3) + Raptor (14) = 17
3. Maverick (3) + Magnum XL-200 (17) = 20
4. Millennium Force (10) + Raptor (14) = 24

5. Voyage (2) + Legend (24) = 26
6. Millennium Force (10) + Magnum XL-200 (17) = 27
7. Superman The Ride (12) + Wicked Cyclone (18) = 30

All major parks I've visited ranked by sum of top two rankings:

Carowinds: Fury 325 (2) + Afterburn (9) = 11
Six Flags Magic Mountain: Tatsu (5) + Twisted Colossus (8) = 13
Six Flags Great Adventure: El Toro (3) + Bizarro (11) = 14
Knott's Berry Farm: GhostRider (6) + Silver Bullet (13) = 19
Hersheypark: Storm Runner (7) + Fahrenheit (15) = 22
Kings Dominion: Intimidator 305 (1) + Dominator (21) = 22
Knoebels: Phoenix (4) + Flying Turns (20) = 24
Busch Gardens Williamsburg: Apollo's Chariot (10) + Alpengeist (18) = 28
Six Flags Over Georgia: Mindbender (19) + Goliath (26) = 45
Valleyfair: Renegade (14) + Wild Thing (49) = 63
Dorney Park: Hydra (31) + Talon (40) = 71
Six Flags America: Superman: Ride of Steel (43) + Roar (44) = 87

Of course, Carowinds drops off badly after the top two. Intimidator sits at 54, so without Fury, the park sits down there with Valleyfair.
Top steel: Millennium Force / Steel Vengeance / Intimidator 305 / Maverick / Fury 325
Top wood: El Toro / Phoenix / GhostRider / Renegade / Flying Turns

After I went and actually ranked everything for the poll, here's a pseudoscientific way of determining which park has the best top 2 coasters (which is not at all related to which ones I think are the best parks overall):

1. Cedar Point: Millennium Force (1) and Magnum XL-200 (7) = 8 pts.
2. Holiday World: Voyage (6) and Thunderbird (12) = 18 pts.
3. Knoebels: Phoenix (3) and Twister (16) = 19 pts.
4. Hersheypark: Skyrush (4) and Lightning Racer (23) = 27 pts.
5. Kentucky Kingdom: Lightning Run (14) and Storm Chaser (15) = 29 pts.
6. Dollywood: Mystery Mine (10) and Wild Eagle (20) = 30 pts.
7. SF Magic Mountain: Twisted Colossus (13) and Tatsu (22) = 35 pts.
8. SF Great America: Goliath (17) and X-Flight (19) = 36 pts.
9. Kings Island: Diamondback (9) and The Beast (29) = 38 pts.
10T. Disneyland: Space Mountain (11) and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (28) = 39 pts.
10T. SF Great Adventure: El Toro (5) and Nitro (34) = 39 pts.
