@Robobud: SCHWABINCHEN either refers to the people of a part in germany, the SCHWABEN (an area around Stuttgart where people speak a horrible accent, sort of like the BAVARIANS). But I think it means "little girl from SCHWABING". Schwabing is a part of the city of Munich, which was a very bohemian part of Munich in that era. Since the Facade of the ride is painted with motives of Munich and the ride was located there, i think that this is the correct translation.
Sorry to smash all hopes that it could mean something obscene. And the singing condoms are just an image of a famous church in Munich. I see now that the appearance of this ride is sparking your fantasies. Smells like culture-clash ;-)
@Lonnol: AFAIK Schwarzkopf was never involved in building these rides.
I feel like a german teacher already;-)

Blackshirts13 : Please, you don't even know me how can you come up with a conclusion like that?
This information could be in fact incorrect. I do know that loosely translated "Schwabinchen" is also feminine slang. Which I should have stated, but it also has a meaning to the other slang term.
This information came from my Grandma, who visited the park with us. She was from Yugoslavia and was kicked out of her own homeland, fleed to Austria to continue life there, until immigrating to America.
This is why I rarely post interesting tidbits about rides.. too many people who will rip it down. And hey, it don't matter to me, that's what forums are for anyways.. to voice your opinion.
Fawcett_Towers : Thank you for showing respect to the information that I heard :) I'm also learning something new from you.
