Data taken from my new coasterpoll.com combined ranking. It made this easier to make. I'm surprised to see some parks left the top 15 here. It seems having a handful of great coasters still won't add up. BGW, BGT, KBF, SDC, and Knoebel's were all left out despite having a really solid line up.

Cedar Point: Maverick(3) + Millennium Force(27) = 30
SFGAdv: El Toro(6) + Nitro(29) = 35
Dollywood: Lightning Rod(1) +Thunderhead(37) = 38
Hersheypark: Skyrush(5) + Storm Runner(34) = 39
Happy Valley: Mega-Lite(9) + Diving Coaster(32) = 41
Six Flags New England: Superman the Ride(14) + Wicked Cyclone(31) = 45
Canada's Wonderland: Behemoth(17) + Leviathan(30) = 47
Six Flags Mexico: Medusa Steel Coaster(7) + Superman el Ultimo Escape(40) = 47
Kentucky Kingdom: Storm Chaser(23) + Lightning Run(28) = 51
Carowinds: Fury 325(11) + Intimidator(43) = 54
Holiday World: Voyage(22) + Legend(48) = 70
King's Island: Beast(51) + Diamondback(21) = 72
SFGAm: Goliath(25) + Raging Bull(47) = 72
SFFT: Iron Rattler(12) + Superman Krypton Coaster(53) = 75
Universal Japan: Flying Dino(35) + Hollywood Dream(45) = 80

I'm sure these un-ridden combos would surely crack this list: I305/Twisted Timbers, Helix/Balder, iSpeed/Katun, Flying Aces/Formula Rossa, Goliath/RMC Robin Hood. But I doubt any will ever beat Steel Vengeance/Maverick.

I've never been, but I think Kentucky Kingdom has one of the best one-two punches out there with Lightning Run and Storm Chaser. It really doesn't get much better than that.

As for parks I've visited, Six Flags New England (Wicked Cyclone and Superman) is the best one that comes to mind. And like others have said, especially with Steel Vengeance, Cedar Point will have a one-two-three-four-five punch!
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)

SDC:

Outlaw Run + literally every other adult coaster in the park, pick any of them. Seriously the only park where the entire lineup is the one-two-three-four-five punch, and I haven't even started on the non coaster things
1. Millennium Force | 2. New Texas Giant | 3. Outlaw Run | 4. Maverick | 5. Iron Rattler | 6. The Voyage | 7. Goliath (SFGAm) | 8. Time Traveler | 9. Raging Bull | 10. Diamondback
