I didn't personally get any weird feelings anywhere in the building, though the tour was very interesting historically. I asked our guide what the scariest thing he'd ever experienced there was and he said he was doing rounds at the end of a night of tours and was walking down the stairs and felt what seemed to be a cane whack across his back and it actually brought him to his knees and he had a big mark when he checked later (or so he said...)
He also said one night around 2004 he and some other guides were hanging around a burn barrel outside keeping warm when they heard screaming inside. They went up to the 4th floor, opened a door from the stairwell and 3 teenage boys were sobbing and saying thank you thank you. Which was weird, because usually trespassers will run away and hide so they don't get arrested. He showed us the doors- there are no locks on them and they are rusty, but all of them swing easily. They don't jam or even latch at all. The boys had broken in with an ax into a boarded up window and the door had ax marks all through it as if they were swinging at it with everything they had. They said they were surrounded by shadow people who wouldn't let them leave. And you can see the the force they were hitting this door with- that was pretty cool.
He took us up to the 4th floor to "look at shadow people" and I thought I saw things a couple of times, but you can't really discount external factors (such as the lack of windows and debris that may be in the room and also just the darkness and the power of suggestion) It is supposedly easier to see the shadow people when you have a frame of reference, so he asked for a volunteer to walk down to the end of the hall alone and walk back slowly so we could see things moving around them, and of course my husband jumped at the chance. At one point I did see him kind of stop and he said that he felt something run by him that was definitely not a normal breeze.
Other than that, our visit was pretty uneventful (except for the poor girl in our haunted house group that was sobbing and fell into the fetal position by the time we were in the death tunnel... probably she shouldn't go to any more haunted houses...)

i'd really like to see it for myself one day, but obviously without kids.

I fully believe that not everyone is meant to see things; some things you just aren't meant to know.
