Latitude Society – The Rich Artist Who Accidentally Started a Cult


A few years ago, escape rooms took the world by storm. The best of these experiences challenged players mentally and physically. The games sometimes even stressed the relationships of those who endeavor to compete together. Anyone who has completed one of these escape rooms has dreamed of a more significant challenge. San Francisco artist Jeff Hull realized that dream in 2014. The experience was called the Latitude Society, and it aimed to give people a sense of awe and wonder while also tangibly challenging them. It, however, had unintended consequences. The participants formed a bond with those who experienced it, and the members began to connect with it in a cult-like fashion. The story of the Latitude Society is a cautionary tale to some and an incredible journey to others.
