If you’re looking for a Genesis parallax theme other than Parallax Pro, I got you covered.
These parallax themes are all built in the Genesis Framework. I collected them from StudioPress, Hello You Designs, Creative Market, and other Genesis theme stores. All 7 Genesis themes are mobile responsive + HTML5 which I have also specified in each theme’s details.
Parallax gives your site a sense of depth using vertical design with background images (or videos). While some people criticize parallax websites for lacking SEO because they’re only a one-page website, you can actually have unlimited pages and posts, and they can include design and functionality other Genesis themes have. Just follow your theme’s setup instructions and use StudioPress’ Genesis installation instructions, plugins, and tutorials.
Altitude Pro is similar to Parallax Pro only it features a single page (homepage) where the individual sections are larger than those in Parallax Pro. The navigation items don’t HAVE to have the scrolling effect – each item can lead to a new page (see links in footer). Altitude Pro is a clean, simple theme that can quickly be customized into an awesome Genesis website.

Parallax Pro was developed by StudioPress and is likely the most popular Genesis parallax theme on the market. Here are Youtube instructions for setting it up, but it comes with 5 color options (blue, green, orange, pink, red), 3 layout options (though you can add more using plugin like Genesis Design Palette), and the theme is overall very customizable. View the sample websites I’ve listed to see what different layouts, colors, and designs look like.

SiteGround was rated the #1 WordPress host in a Facebook poll taken by the official WordPress Hosting Facebook Group (they were #1 in last year’s poll too) and got me <1s load times with perfect 100% scores in GTmetrix and Pindgom. If you need WordPress hosting that makes your theme/website load fast, they are constantly #1 in thread after thread after thread since they will migrate you for free and most people see nice load time improvements. I use their GoGeek which has 4x more server resources (the #1 site speed factor).
While these are the only Genesis parallax themes out there, there are plenty of other Genesis themes to choose from. That links to a post I wrote that organizes tons of Genesis themes into industries and theme type. It’s worth having a look so you know your options.
If you found my list helpful, please share. I would appreciate that. And if you know of any other Genesis themes with parallax scrolling capability, drop me a line!
