I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express when I was in Ashland getting my replacement for my car. Spent a few Haunt hours up at KD that night too.

Previously I stayed at the Best Western up by KD, mostly so I could just walk to the park.

Personally, I would like to see another I-Box conversion without inversions.

Not gonna happen. Also RMC inversions are a lot better than your typical roller coaster inversions.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

1) Debatable

2) Parks don't make decisions based on what enthusiasts want (and thank god for that). Lightning Rod doesn't have any inversions, while it's not an Iron Horse it really doesn't make much of a difference what track type they're using. Sometimes parks ask for coasters without inversions.

Okay but most RMCs have inversions, including one in the same chain as KD, so it's reasonable to infer that this one will too.

Sure, but that's not what we're responding to. We're responding to your comment that another non inverting IBox conversion will never happen.

That was more of a hyperbole. I didn't actually mean it was statistically impossible.

As much as I would prefer them to avoid inversions, there is probably a good reason to change a non-inverting coaster to an inverting coaster when you are rebranding it.
