Less than half an hour's drive west of Copenhagen in Tastrup is the only vertical wind tunnel on the island of Zealand, the Copenhagen Air Experience. A virtual skydiving experience that simulates free-fall for everyone from first-timers to professionals with wind speeds at 220 kph, making for a great chance to feel the rush without the danger of ever having to open a parachute. Such an activity doesn't come cheap, however. The "Learn to Fly" package intended for novices includes two 2-minute sessions for about $100 USD. You can book ahead online to be sure to add some spice to your adventure in Copenhagen; otherwise, it could just be a tour of the same, old buildings!
