By on March 8, 2017 in ArticlesBillionaire News

Hey rollercoaster junkies! You might want to dust off your resume and get it over to Tesla ASAP. Elon Musk recently promised to build a rollercoaster in his California Tesla facility to help his employees get around and have fun doing it.

The billionaire electric car tycoon sent an email to his employees in which he outlined a number of ideas to increase the fun factor at the Tesla factory, including a "Tesla electric pod car rollercoaster."

The email was leaked on February 24th and also said: "As we get closer to being a profitable company, we will be able to afford more and more fun things. For example, as I mentioned at the last company talk, we are going to hold a really amazing party once Model 3 reaches volume production later this year."

Musk also promised that there would be free frozen yogurt stands throughout the factory.

As for that rollercoaster, it is rumored to be a loop the loop style coaster that will run in and out of the factory and throughout the parking lots.

"Its going to get crazy good," Musk also said in the email.

This isn't the first time Musk has brought up the concept of a rollercoaster in his factory. He first mentioned it in his book "Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX and the Quest for a Fantastic Future."

Tesla's Palo Alto facility employs about 6,000 people. There are also a number of satellite offices in the Bay Area.

Following the leak of the email, Musk took to Twitter to say:

"Rollercoasters are awesome."
