Zip line tour, Strenuous?

I want to do a zip line tour when we are in Ketchikan but my dad has lower back problems and is concerned he will not enjoy it. from those who did this with Beer creek or Alaska canopy was is strenuous on your back? I really would like his to try it, after all I'm going fishing with him so I want him to go zipp'en through the trees with me:)

Probably he'd be okay, but I strongly suggest you contact the outfitter, explain in detail what your dad's problem is, and then let them advise you.

In the meantime, you might want to read these threads from our "sister" site about ziplines in general (not Ketchikan specifically):
