Storm Chaser and Lightning Run are both epic coasters. They totally lived up to the hype and are one of the best one two punches in the US if you're looking for extreme airtime coasters.

2018 update: Two parks now reign supreme for untouchable dual coaster combos.

1. Cedar Point: Steel Vengeance(1) + Maverick(3) = 5
2. Kings Dominion: Intimidator 305(3) + Twisted Timbers(7) = 10
3a. SFGAdv: El Toro(8) + Nitro(38) = 46
3b. Liseberg: Helix(19) + Balder(27) = 46
5. Hersheypark: Skyrush(6) + Storm Runner(44) = 50
6. Kings Island: Mystic Timbers(24) + Diamondback (33) = 57
7a. Dollywood: Lightning Rod(2) +Thunderhead(63) = 65
7b. Happy Valley: Mega-Lite(14) + Diving Coaster(51) = 65
9. Six Flags Mexico: Medusa Steel Coaster(12) + Superman el Ultimo Escape(55) = 67
10. SFNE: Superman the Ride(20) + Wicked Cyclone(50) = 70

11. Canada's Wonderland: Behemoth(23) + Leviathan(46) = 69
12. CGA: RailBlazer(16) + Gold Striker(56) = 72
13a. Europa Park: Silver Star(25) + Wodan(49) = 74
13b. Carowinds: Fury 325(15) + Intimidator(59) = 74
15. Kentucky Kingdom: Storm Chaser(34) + Lightning Run(41) = 75

Some honorable mentions that didn't quite make the cut: Taron/Black Mamba, Alpengesit/Apollo's Chariot, Outlaw Run/Wildfire, IRat/Superman, Flying Dino/Hollywood Dream

Some unridden combo's to look out for that could rank: Goliath/RMC Robin Hood, SD2000/RMC White Cyclone, IRat/Wonder Woman, iSpeed/Katun, Fury 325/Copperhead Strike, Twisted Cyclone/Goliath

I want to make a ranking like this for top 3 or even top 4 coaster collections!

Carowinds - Fury 325 (1) and Intimidator (4) = 5
Kings Dominion - Intimidator 305 (2) and Twisted Timbers (3) = 5
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom - Medusa (5) and Roar (12) = 17 (Haven't gotten on Joker yet)
Busch Gardens Williamsburg - Alpengeist (8) and Griffon (9) = 17
Disneyland Anaheim - California Screamin' (11) and Space Mountain (23) = 34
Walt Disney World - Rock 'n' Roller Coaster (19) and Expedition Everest (24) = 43
Legoland California - Dragon (39) and Coastersaurus (40) = 79
