Here are the minifigures. You get a female and a male minifigure. They have nice torso printing on them.

You first start off building the base of the set.

You then build the skating rink.

Complete Built Set

The set is then completed with building the drink stand, the trees and the lamp post. Below is the completed set.

The minifigures have one foot attached to the LEGO piece for spinning action while the other foot has the ice skates on.

You can spin the set two ways. One is on the side with the blue piece and the minifigures would circle around the entire skating rink. Another function is the fountain which you can spin as well. The minifigures then spin in smaller circles. Though, the fountain spinning function doesn't spin as well. It has a nice drink stand with Christmas Wreath on top, cups and a money bill. The trees are decorated with snow as well.

Overall Thoughts

This set took me about 45 minutes to build (includes sorting the pieces). The holiday promo sets usually this time of the year are very nice. It has lots of details and features. There are also no stickers which is a huge plus. This set is comparable to the Charles Dickens set. The LEGO 40416 Ice Skating Rink is currently a gift with purchase available at LEGO Brand Retail Stores and LEGO Shop at Home (USA | Canada | UK | Australia) with LEGO purchases over $150 USD / $150 CAD / £150 GBP / $209 AUD. Offer is valid from December 1-31, 2020 or while supplies last.
