Best seed for a "rollercoaster" map?

Something that involves lava and water? Just dug to the ground on my file but no lava

Just make a branch mine you should eventually hit lava but my favorite seed worstseedever spawns you near a mob spawner that's near a cave system that will have all the iron and lava you'll want/need.

Need a stone or better pick, The tiers work like this:
Wood: Can mine stone, cobble,sandstone, Nether rack (I think, I have never tried) and coal.
Stone: Can mine the above and iron.
Iron: Can mine the above and Redstone, Gold and Diamonds.
Gold: Like Iron but only has 30ish uses, is extremely fast.
Diamond: Can mine the above and obsidian (albeit very slowly I think it's 15s). Diamond also has something like 1000 uses and is faster than all the other picks, other than Gold

Are you using a stone pick? You won't get anything if you destroy it with anything other than a stone, iron, or diamond pick. Maybe TNT as well, not sure.

That explains it. I was using a wood pickaxe.

If you have iron ore, you're good to go. Take that ore and smelt it in an oven. Fuel (ie. Wood, coal, charcoal, lava) on the bottom. Ore on top. Doing this produces ingots which can be used to make other things.

EDIT: Lol. I read your message as I have iron ore. Not I have one iron. You shouldn't have to dig that deep for iron. You should be able to find plenty close to the surface if not on the surface.

It probably doesn't, but I can't be sure since I skipped the tutorial. You should explore a bit until you find a natural cave or a deep hole. Make your way inside and you should be swimming in iron in no time. Make sure you bring enough supplies to last since you might be looking around for a while.
