The Dinosaur Park Tenby is one of South Wales’ most iconic tourist destinations for families. Opened in 1994 by Amanda and Simon Meyrick, this unique theme park offers walking trails and an array of Jurassic-themed activities that has attracted thousands of visitors every year. In February 2023, the Dinosaur Park Tenby joined InSynch on a Total Digital Marketing package to increase awareness of the park across the UK.

The Client’s Aim:

The Dinosaur Park wanted to drive awareness of the park, and park visitor numbers as a result. Their primary audience were parents holidaying in Tenby, looking for things to do for their children. They hoped that casting a wider net with digital advertising could improve visitor numbers.

We talked with them about their needs and goals in a 1-2-1 consultation and proposed the folowing strategies:

  • Geotargeted PPC advertising across Google and meta, with the aim of making visitors to Wales aware of the park
  • Social media management driving brand awareness and the family friendly experience
  • Search engine optimisation with a focus on catching activity seekers
  • Branding & website design consultancy to sell the park to website visitors

What We Achieved

There’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach with digital marketing, and our approach at InSynch is always bespoke for the client’s business and needs. That’s what makes our Total Digital Marketing packages so successful for our clients.

Perhaps the most important part is understanding your target customer – who they are, where they are, and how they make a purchase or a decision. This was essential for optimising The Dinosaur Park’s digital presence towards people most likely to visit.

PPC Advertising

We advised the park to reach parents, especially those on holiday and/or within travel distance to the park. Our marketing experts built an audience of parents of children of a certain age, in a radius of popular holiday parks and tourist towns around South Wales.

We constructed the PPC ads targeting the unique aspects of this audience, using signals to target websites of parental interest, such as Mums Net. Overall, geotargeted PPC advertising successfully raised brand awareness. The Dinosaur Park have garnered over 400,000 impressions across Google’s display network.

Social Media

We used a similar approach towards their organic social media management, asking who were they socialising and sharing media with? And were these people decision-makers? For the client, their brand had to highlight how brilliant the park is for a day out, relating to parents on a social level.

The Dinosaur Park had such a rich reserve of photo and video content, which we took full advantage of to create Reels and stories for maximum reach. Using Meta’s platforms of Facebook and Instagram, the park garnered 44,000 impressions from parents.


We carried out extensive keyword research for the client, to see what the majority of their audience was searching for online. We compared search volume between the different regions of the UK, to see if there were different trends. Through this, we discovered many parents were using search engines to find things to do while on holiday in Wales.

With these results, we optimised the website and Google My Business with a focus on ranking in local searches. Since February 2023, the client has seen 71,000 unique website visitors.

Branding & Website Consultancy

The client had a very extensive website rich with information, and we advised them on the best way to present itself in order to appeal to parents. Without an option for online booking, it was important to ensure the website acted as an interactive brochure. We encouraged them to approach it with the mindset of a parent, and ensuring their questions had an easy-to-access answer.

In conclusion, our efforts with the Dinosaur Park have proven successful, and the Meyricks were very happy with the results. They plan to employ our services again, ahead of the 2024 holiday season.
