SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP): Cedar Point says construction is nearing completion on its new roller coaster.

Park officials in Sandusky tell The News-Messenger in Fremont that the track has been completed and crews now are focusing on landscaping, electric and computer work.

Valravn is expected to debut in May 2016. The theme park opens on May 7th.

It will include a free-fall 90-degree drop of over 200 feet and hit a top speed of 75 mph.

Workers last week were busy with construction of the walkways, ride station, photo building and gift shop.
