The Central City testing facility was closed some time ago after one of its test pilots went missing.[1]

Harrison Wells, Cisco Ramon and Caitlin Snow took a van out to the testing facility to assess Barry Allen's super speed. He ran along a road before crashing into a group of water barrels.[2]

They returned to the testing facility, attempting to improve Barry's speed in order to rival the Reverse-Flash, a name which Cisco coined that day. Rather than outrunning the projectiles, Barry ultimately chose to redirect a missile in to another one.[3]

Barry, Cisco, and Caitlin later brought the meta-humans who had been incarcerated in the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator here to move them to A.R.G.U.S.'s high-security prison on Lian Yu after "Wells" reactivated the particle accelerator. However, due to Leonard and Lisa Snart sabotaging the truck they had used to transport the metas, Barry having asked Leonard to assist with the move, the prisoners escaped.
