Shooting Sar Casino has a new dining option this year.



I wanted to ask when the Shooting Star Casino will release more information about 2017 Paracon like the guests/ other paranormal teams also attending Paracon. I hope you can get back to me soon :)

We are eagerly waiting as well. I would guess early July since tickets generally go on sale in August. As soon as we get the list we will be posting on our facebook page as well as updating this page.

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

How much do tickets cost??

jeremy's picture

2016 price. This has been the price for the past few years.

2-Day Presentation Pass $65
VIP Pass $100 - includes 2-Day Pass + VIP Dinner

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

Just wondering what the delay would be with them.releasing the line up.. It has never been this late

jeremy's picture

We were told it will be soon. Look for it to come out the first week of August. Definitely before the 14th ticket sale date.

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

Do you know if Ghost Adventures might be coming to paracon in October at the shooting star Casino???

jeremy's picture

Just on Saturday

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

If Ghost Adventures are only coming on the 14th does that mean there not coming to the VIP dinner?

jeremy's picture

They typically don't fly in until the night before. I would guess it won't change this year. VIP is still fun with all the other talent around to mingle with.

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

Is the shooting star casino going to redo their list. So other people will know that Grant Wilson will be there at paracon? So Excited that he will be there!!!!!!!!!!!!! ❤

jeremy's picture

There will probably be other changes as well. We will.just have to be patient.

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

Not the VIP tickets but the regular $65 tickets. Is there a certain limit they are selling until they're out. So basically do we need to buy our tickets ASAP before they run out? I know on the 14th they start selling them. So a friend of mine wants to go but she will know for sure at the end of August maybe the first part of October if she will be able to go. Will it be too late for her to buy them?

jeremy's picture

I don't think they have sold out...or if they can. Your friend should be safe. Following the event page on facebook  and our facebook page should give you any warning before that happens.

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

So somebody just made a comment on the shooting star Casino Facebook page. They said that Amy Allan was not going to be at the paracon 2017???
They said they talked to Amy on Twitter and she said they made a mistake?? Is this true.

jeremy's picture

Expect a few changes to the line up. It happens every year. I can't find anything to say "yes it's true" or "no it's not". One year the GA crew bailed a week before and they brought in 4 different people to take their place. Linda Blair was one of the substitutions. Grant Wilson says he will be there according to Twitter as well. We will just have to wait and see.

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

just wondering why you guys have the list of people coming but the shooting star website doesn't have them listed yet?

jeremy's picture

Shooting Star has an event page on Facebook - ParaCon2017 - Link -  They post the lineup on the event page before the website. Likely because the first list to come out usually goes through some changes. They send us a list with the instruction to wait until they go public first.

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

Wow the Tickets went up!!!!!!
From $65.00 to $75.00 ??????????
They still haven't listed Grant Wilson??? And they still have Amy Allan on there and she says she's not coming???
Almost thinking about waiting to buy tickets. Until they get the list right. My main reason for going is to see Ghost Adventures. The others will be an extra bonus. But I would sure like to know for sure who I am going to be able to see. Especially when you travel 8 hours to get there. They are making it a little confusing this year??????????

jeremy's picture

The ticket price has been the same for quite a few years now. They were bound to go up eventually. I'm sure the cost of the talent has gone up slightly each year. They probably won't update the list till it gets closer to the event. The line up always changes slightly and it's hard to say what goes on behind the scenes. Every year has been this way.

In one way or another, we are all in the dark

I'm excited for this year. I've been coming to it sense 2012. But looking at the list, Its shorter then years past. Have they just not posted everyone or have they made cuts?

jeremy's picture

We don't get the proper information to answer your question. With the increase in ticket price, I would think that certain "talent" has increased their fees as well. It might just be the best for the buck instead as many as we can get for this price. Thanks for being a regular.

In one way or another, we are all in the dark
