European brown bear cubs Spot and Scarlett play with feeder cubes made from the hose

Approximately 4,000 feet of faulty fire hose has found new life at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey.

Park officials released video Monday of 4-year-old European brown bear cubs Spot and Scarlett playing with feeder cubes made from donated fire hose in the Safari area.

The brother and sister duo roll the sturdy cubes until edible treats tumble out of the holes.

In December, the Robbinsville Fire Department delivered the defective hose to Six Flags Safari.

Since that time, Six Flags' animal care team has worked diligently to create fun and useful animal enrichment materials from the hose such as swings, perches, balls and more.

Hose2Habitat, a Maryland-based non-profit that partners fire departments with zoos and animal sanctuaries to recycle surplus hose, helped facilitate the donation.
