Ziplining & Camping Adventure in the Midwest

Hello, there!

Looking to do some camping and ziplining. Ideally, I'd like a theme park or ranch where the attractions include a zipline as opposed to the (very expensive) zipline being the only attraction. We are in Chicago and not looking to travel more than two hours. Family of 7 with kids ranging from 17 to 6. Plus Grandpa.

Illinois or Indiana would work. Michigan if it's worth it.

Hope to stumble upon one of the best kept secrets of the Midwest....

Ziplining over a corn field isn't an exciting experience. I found this on Google

John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids,Michigan. ( 3 hrs -/+ ) has a zipline, it's a short run but it's cool for kids and there is a ropes course also, Plus you're in the zoo as an attraction. A litte further north in Muskegon, you can take the kids to Michigan's. Adventures amusement park. You can also visit Grand Haven as a side trip. I'm sure there are campgrounds in the area. You can post on the Michigan forum for more details.
