It actually translates as 'curve before first launch', which the train goes through after exiting the corkscrew and on approaching the first launch.

This ride does look absolutely amazing.

Love how this park is small, but just installs attractions which do not fail to impress.

Who needs gimmicks..

More track is up, although I couldn't tell you where in the layout it is...

So on the Helix website they have uploaded some new pictures over the past few days! It shows a good animated picture of the trains and they have green glowing lights on them! Whether or not they will be used all the time I'm not sure.
Also, although I haven't used a translator there seems to be a lot of work going on for the station. If you look on the blog it'll be top story. I don't understand what it says but there's lots of pictures showing work going on.

Hi guys! So an update has been posted on the website. Now I have used a translator as as we know it doesn't always change to make sense in our language however would if you were reading it in Swedish. You can make sense of. Out of it :) here it is:
Since the last post in December, it has a part. In particular, work with stationsbygget rolled on. Now it appears that there should be a how, most walls are in place - there is some of the walls to the workshop (closest to the image if you're checking the webcam) to on-site. At the moment they work also with to put the roof on the station. On 22 January, the building should be covered, but it does not mean that the roof is quite clear. Thanks should be covered with so-called sedumväxter to blend nicely into the environment. When these can be planted is dependent on weather so until later on in our roof becomes quite clear. The number of station so it is soon time to lift the rails in the house. According to plan, this should be done with effect from 27 January. Thereafter, it is planned that the braking distance before the station also to be installed. Next week we will begin installation of rail again. We moved forward this work to wait for more material from Germany so that technicians may not sit and roll your thumbs and wait for deliveries in unnecessarily. But now there is enough rails in place and they will begin to work with to install ready around escalator and in the upper part of the park toward the station. Work with that pull electricity to Helix has rolled on and the most is now in place in switchgear number 9. On 28 January we have planned a trials of S9 so we will keep our fingers crossed that everything looks good. Since it is February, and I would ask to be allowed to come back to you with more information about what is happening in a later speech, but I would like to take this opportunity to tell you that the date is booked for the first test on 19 March 2014! 98 Days Left and countdown ...

This sounds like construction is really picking up and the first test run is 19th March!! Can't wait :)
