I say splash mountain is flume dark ride. Mainly because of the dark section. That part makes it feel like a dark ride.
And like I said above, wikipedia has it listed as a dark ride.

It's a log flume. Many other log flumes have dark sections(Timber Mountain at KBF, Log Flume at MOA, etc).

Ok.
Well another reason why I chose SM was because the only other dark rides I've ridden are Peter Pan and Wnnie the Pooh (MK). So I went with SM because it was my favorite ride out of those three.
