SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) – Cedar Point has topped off its newest roller coaster that’s set to debut next year.

Officials at the Sandusky amusement park say the warm weather has helped speed up construction on the coaster that will be the largest of its kind.

Workers finished the ride’s 220-foot tall lift hill this past week. Most of the track still needs to be put in place.

The dive coaster called Valravn will have a 90-degree drop and travel at a top speed of 75 mph before going upside-down three times.
