I finally got the chance to visit Holiday World and ride their two great woodies. From my view, I'd say that this park has one of the best 2 wooden coaster combinations in the country, second only to PKI's "Son of Beast, Beast" combo. Are there any other parks that anyone here would put in that upper tier? Maybe Knoebel's?
Hersheypark has a great combo. Lightning Racers, Wildcat, and Comet. What could be better than a classic wood, an awesome wood twister,and a twisting racer. Hershey has great wooden coasters.

The winner here is Knoebels with the Phoenix and Twister.Tthe Phoenix has tons of air time thruout the whole ride. Twister is full of strong laterals and a few pops of air. These two coasters compliment each other perfectly if the one doesn't have what your looking for in a coaster the other has it.
Parks hit for 2000!
If they took the trim brakes off of the American Eagle like it used to be then SFGAm would have a great 1-2 punch with Eagle and Viper. Just looked at another coaster site and today in history the American Eagle(1981) and Blue streak(1964) opened. Happy birthday to both woodies.

Coasterpunk and I always seem to agree that Knoebels has the best 1-2 punch when it comes to wooden coasters! If you can't find what you're looking for in a wooden coaster there, you're not going to find it.
Hard to choose for me. I got BOSS and Screechin' Eagle at SFStL. I also got Wildcat and Comet over at Hershey (I liked Comet better than LR). Big Dipper is awesome but Villain isn't too good. I lean towards SFStL. ________________________ "This song's for stupid girls," A NEW FOUND GLORY-Boy Crazy
I have not been there, but Silverwood looks to have a mean 1-2 punch with Tremors and Timber Terror. Two world-class CCI's with unique layouts, and some mean lookin airtime. That first drop/tunnel/speedbump on Tremors looks amazing, too.
