SANDUSKY, Ohio — Cedar Point amusement park says it has topped off its new roller coaster that will debut next spring at its northern Ohio complex.Construction is moving ahead on the "winged" roller-coaster called GateKeeper that's designed to make riders feel like they're flying.

The park says it topped off the main 170-foot hill just after Thanksgiving.

The blue-steeled tubular coaster will have riders on seats that extend sideways from the track, with nothing above or below them.

The coaster will be built at the main entrance and will pass over arriving guests as it inverts riders and sends them upside-down.

GateKeeper is part of a roughly $30 million project overhauling the park's entrance.
